We were thrilled to see so many faces at our first Pitch & Mix event of 2016, particularly as it played host to a big announcement. For those of you who couldn’t be there, here’s a taste of what went on.
Yesterday’s Pitch & Mix event was a rousing success, with more than 120 investors, entrepreneurs and finance professionals coming together for a night of conversation and opportunity.
The evening was abuzz with stimulating discussion over wine and canapés. It all kicked off at 18:00 in BDO LLP’s crystalline headquarters in central London, with a few investors arriving early to take part in an exclusive workshop on angel investing with special guest David S. Rose, CEO of Gust.
Before long, attendees of the sold-out event were ushered over to the auditorium – as well as the neighbouring ‘overflow’ room – and the pitching part of the evening kicked off. Among those presenting were FX platform Kwanji, biomedical company Axol, logistics solution business Value Chain Lab, ice cream merchants Vai Milano and compliance SaaS provider NowWeComply.
Existing SyndicateRoom investors (and more than a handful of new faces) got the chance to question founders following each pitch before making their way back to the networking room for more in-depth discussions.
Attendees also heard an exciting announcement from our CEO Gonçalo and David S. Rose, CEO of the world’s largest network of early-stage investors. We followed up with David afterwards to give everyone at home a taste of what went on:
We’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all those who attended and made it a bustling evening to remember. Special thanks goes out to BDO’s dedicated staff, who saved us more than a few grey hairs!
For those of you who couldn’t make it this time, don’t despair! We will be announcing another Pitch & Mix event in the months to come – sign up to our newsletter to guarantee you’re first in the know.
