Description

We are delighted to announce we have booked our next Sheffield Alumni in London Network event:

Theme:
The Spring event theme is Entrepreneurship and we are absolutely delighted to have secured notable alumni guest speakers. We're proud to announce the founders of MOPP and Elder, Peter Dowds and Tom Brooks.

The pair swapped lucrative careers in the Square Mile to follow their own business idea - and this is why we've got them in for our next Sheffield Alumni in London event!

Event Programme:

  • 6.30pm - arrival

  • 7:00pm - speed networking

  • 8:00pm - Q&A

  • 8:15pm - informal networking

  • 9:00pm - close

Refreshments will be served including beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks, with nibbles available. The dress code is Business.

About our Speakers:

The two alumni of The University first met in halls and quickly established a friendship, and later business partnership, that would prove highly successful.

MOPP is an online platform enabling users to find professional cleaner services (think of it as Uber with dusters) which was sold in 2014 to US firm Handy in a multi-million pound deal. In 2015 they started a new venture, Elder, which aims to link carers and care-giving professionals with those who need it. Peter and Tom have raised £7 million for Elder from one of the leading Venture Capital funds in Europe.

Media Coverage of the Speakers:

The Evening Standard
The Telegraph
The Guardian

Sites:

Elder
Handy
(the new MOPP)

We really hope that this event sounds of interest.

If you are unable to attend, do not worry as we'll announce details of our October 2018 event in the not too distant future!

Best wishes
