Description


Kairos UK has partnered with Enspiral to bring you a unique evening, exploring the future of entrepreneurship.


Life as an entrepreneur can be tough. As Elon Musk says, “Being an entrepreneur is like eating glass and staring into the abyss of death.” Long days, constant challenges, learning from failures - and unfortunately a lot of this is often done alone.


But could it be different? Imagine a new kind of entrepreneurship, an Entrepreneurship 2.0, where instead of the focus being on the lone w olf entrepreneur, the focus is on the community, and the ecosystem that supports a start-up into flourishing? This kind of collaborative entrepreneurship throws up some big questions:


  • How can we come together as entrepreneurs and be stronger?

  • How could we pool our resources, time and know-how to be larger than the sum of our parts?

  • What kind of impact could we unlock if we learned to collaborate on a large scale?


Kairos is a global network of young entrepreneurs seeking to fix broken industries. We are from different continents, verticals and backgrounds but share a desire to leave the world in a better way than how we found it, by sharing our experience, networks and expertise.


Enspiral is a global ecosystem of entrepreneurs and freelancers who develop software and practices for global collaboration, and who collaborate together to launch businesses with a social and/or environmental mission. T The Enspiral network has been experimenting with new forms of governance, making decisions and collaboratively budgeting together for 8 years.


This event is open to Kairos Fellows and specially invited Friends of Kairos.



Location: Newspeak House, 133 Bethnal Green Rd, London E2 7DG.


Time: 6:30pm - 10pm


Cost: We are asking for a £15 contribution to cover food and drink (beers, wine and soft drinks) for the evening and nothing else. If there is any money leftover after organising, this will be donated to charity.


Dresscode: Casual. The evening will be casual but we may decide to go out in Shoreditch after the event.


Format: There will be drinks, we'll order in some food, and some light exercises to get to know each other better. There will also be slots for some Lightning Talks - 5 minute talks from the community to share what they are working on, and any problems they need help solving.


Do I need to bring anything? Come prepared to talk about your work and your ideas on how you think entrepreneurship could be different. Of course, if you don't want to speak in front of the group, you won't have to! If you want to speak in front of the group about your startup or entrepreneurship in general - reach out and do a 5 minute Lightning Talk!


Donation: There is an option available to make a £5 donation to charity in generous Christmas spirit. We will decide collaboratively on the charity we choose to donate our collective contribution to!


This will be the final Kairos UK event of the year, and an opportunity to think deeply, share honestly, and nourish our relationships over drinks and some delicious food.


If you have any questions, please reach out to Phoebe (phoebe@enspiral.com) or Seth (seth.allen@kairossociety.org).


We look forward to seeing you on the 5th!
