Our friends at The Next Women are putting on a wonderful event to celebrate women entrepreneurs on 1st December at 7pm.
This year’s annual Special Big Kitchen Dinner is bringing together three keynotes that have one thing in common: Winning Pitches. To achieve high growth, entrepreneurs need investment. Some are funded by friends and family and some self-fund by tapping into their savings. Many pitch their ideas to external investors – angels and VCs.
Entrepreneurs are the engine of economic growth – the government is certainly relying on new businesses to help get us out of recession. Yet winning pitches are few and far between, which is why this year’s Special Big Kitchen Dinner is so relevant and important.
Keynotes include Astia member Lisa Halpern having just secured $700K pre-launch from a Super Angel, Carol Savage,who pitched on Dragon’s Den and won Deborah Meaden’s investment to take her business to the next level, and Lena Bjorck, who did a memorable pitch to The Prince’s Trust, shaking a cake to simulate public transport, that secured her the £2,500 she needed to pursue her business and now turns over £1.7M and employs over 100 people across Europe.
The event venue is still a secret, but will be within 2 miles of Notting Hill I am told.
The evening will start with canapés and prosecco, followed by a 3-course meal when our keynotes will briefly talk about their experience and join in a short panel on the challenges and return of selling your business to investors and advisors.
This event is for anyone interested in:

Tickets are £100, which may sound like a lot, but the dinner and drinks alone are worth half that. The advice from true battle-scarred veterans of the entrepreneurial world: priceless.
