I am on an investment panel at a Techcelerate event called Tech Mission London tonight at Paypal’s offices in London. Eight companies will be pitching to the panel and getting feedback in a format styled as Dragon’s Den. I use that description here because the UK amongst you will know what it means. I don’t like it though as in the TV programme Dragon’s Den the Dragon’s (equivalent to the panelists tonight) are often unnecessarily rude to the entrepreneurs who have take the trouble to come and pitch to them.
Hopefully it will be a good event. It is organised by Manoj Ranaweera who works tirelessly to help promote startups, particularly from the north-east of England and he has got a good panel and speaker, not least my friends Ali Mitchell from Huddle and Sean Seton-Rogers from Profounders Capital.
My session runs from 5-7pm but the event runs from lunchtime with a series of workshops in the afternoon.
If you are already going along I look forward to seeing you there. If you haven’t planned to attend yet and have some free time tonight or this afternoon consider coming along.
