Founder F*ckups – Manchester

This event has now ended.

Title: Scars and stories from founders trying to find funding and grow their business.

After a hugely successful inaugural event in Manchester, we're back for the third event in the series! The start-up scene isn’t short of people peddling their success stories. Every morning we wake up to a new ‘Linkedin lesson’ or humble brag.

Founders are too often given conflicting advice from those who’ve never actually grown a company. Growing a business is hard, the Founder Fuck Ups event series is about bringing us back to reality.

Hear from founders who’ve been there before and learned their lessons the hard way. More importantly, listen to what advice they wish they had beforehand. There will be a strict ‘no bullshit’ and ‘no judgment’ rule, and hopefully, everyone can enjoy some awkward stories we can all learn a little.

Hosted by Tania Rahman, Investment Manager at Praetura, we'll be joined by:

  • Elizabeth Clark, Co-Founder CEO at Dream AI
  • Leon Wilson, Founder & CEO at PollenPay
  • Laura Pomfret Co-Founder of Financielle
  • Andrew Barlow Founder & CEO at Chatloop

As is start-up tradition, beers, and refreshments will be included.

Hosted by Prolific North, Department, The Start-Up Factory, Praetura Ventures, and Brewin Dolphin.
