Event Details

We are delighted to be welcoming Ian LeBruce, founder of Cappuccino Ads to speak at our November Young Members Club event.  Earlier this year, Ian was selected to attend the San Francisco Entrepreneur Summit from the 21st - 26th July.  The summit has the tagline 'Global Connections. Global Business. Inspiring Global Entrepreneurship' and is the brainchild of We Are The Future founder Bruce Walker.  The Summit's European VC is WeDO Scotland Chairman, Russell Dalgleish.

The summit is about inspiring global entrepreneurship, putting global minds into practice. Bruce and his team are bringing over some of the Scotland's most innovative entrepreneurs to San Francisco just for this summit, as well as experienced European investors and business experts.  It will create a global link between Europe and the US, connecting attendees with the networks both in the US and Europe, along with the business experts that can assist them  in expanding your business internationally.

 The San Francisco Summit is part of The Scottish Start-Up World Tour where over the next two years We Are The Future aims to run inspiring entrepreneurial events in six countries.  Ian will be sharing with us his experiences of attending the Summit along with how it has benefited Cappuccino Ads since.  This is a great opportunity for our Young Members to find out more about these events and to hear first hand about the application process and the benefits it can bring to your business.  Click here to read our blog about the Summit and Ian.


Ian founded Cappuccino Ads in March 2013 and they are an Edinburgh based enterprise that prints your company's message on biodegradable, double-walled cups and gives them to independent coffee shops.  While the customer is enjoying their coffee, they're also enjoying your message. This enterprise is environmentally friendly and small business friendly.  They can target specific demographics by placing your message in personally selected cafés to complete your bespoke campaign.  

Earlier this year, Ian completed a successful crowdfunding campaign with fellow WeDO members Angels Den which has given him the required investment to implement his not inconsiderable growth plans. He was also one of the finalists in the BQ magazine Emerging Entrepreneur Awards in May.
