Funding and Financing Startups

with David Buttress (Just Eat), Anne Boden (Starling Bank) and Alexandra Depledge (Hassle & Resi)

Funding and Financing Startups is incredibly complicated, time consuming and distracting - but for most founders, it's an essential skill to learn and comes in all shapes and sizes. 

Fortunately, we have 3 Secret Leaders who know how to navigate these tricky waters with aplomb, 

  1. David Buttress - The Founder of Just - Eat, who built his business from a basement to £1.5 billion at IPO, and currently operates as a Venture Capitalist (VC).

  2. Anne Boden - The Founder of Starling Bank, who raised a £45m seed round, and has recently raised £175m to help finance small business loans

  3. Alexandra Depledge - The Founder of Hassle who raised a £6m Series A from Accel and exited for £30m before starting her new business Resi with her eyes open to the pros and cons of Venture Capital term sheets

Join us for another LIVE recording, a special night with special insights, and as always - a few Secret Leaders surprises on your seats from us, with love to thank you for your support! 

Doors open from 6.30pm and we start at 7pm sharp.
