Facing your fears: De-Risking the Start-up Journey

How to identify start-up risks and avoid the pitfalls
Over half of all tech start-ups fail but apparently that’s ok! The myth from Silicon Valley is that you should fail fast and fail often. That’s all very well except that your friends and family have boot-strapped your business and you’ve bet the house. You can’t afford to fail! The good news is that there are plenty of ways to de-risk your start-up journey and improve your chance of success.

Gone in 60 Seconds: Networking, Beer and Pizza

Know what your target market wants and design exactly what they need
Sponsored by Canbury Works and CRE-8 – the new co-working space and Make+Test Lab in the centre of Kingston.
This session is open to all-comers as well as attendees from either of the afternoon seminar events. We plan to have several rounds of 60 second pitching when anyone can stand up and pitch; projects, ideas, needs, business services – (almost) anything!
