Event description

Description

Through innovation and technology, Yolt is changing the topic of money. With Unthink Tank we are exploring this concept of 'unthinking' across other topics, inviting leaders and innovators from the tech, disruptor and creative communities to discuss the issues that impassion and empower them.

Join us for the the inaugural event, welcoming Tom Hörbye of Seedrs to the Unthink Tank stage. With a focus on rethinking how start-ups scale, Tom will talk about how you can acquire new customers, encourage long-standing advocacy for your brand, and leverage funding options inside start-ups’ own communities to raise capital.

Expect an insightful eye on the start-up scene, with inspiring takeaways whether you're thinking about starting your own company, looking to progress your career, or just keen to expand your mind.

Scriberia will also be visualising the event live with their amazing graphical scribing, so you can snap a picture and take a little graphic away for Tom's talk.


Wait, it's before work?

  • That's right, come down from 8.30am for coffee and breakfast on us.
  • Tom will take the stage at 9am, and then there's plenty of time afterwards for any questions for Tom and to network with a savvy crowd and the Yolt team will be on hand to chat too.
  • Everything wraps up by 10am so you'll be back at your desk before you know it, inspired for the day ahead.


About the topic

While the digital age enables more startups the opportunity to chase success, growing effectively at scale is what makes Unicorns out of Uni Dorms.

Tom will discuss the options faced by early stage start-ups and how building a community has never been more important, for user growth, long-standing advocacy, and to raise capital alongside traditional VC funding routes.
