Fintech [Hot topic] Startups, Accelerators & Unicorn Hunting

September 12, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm PDT

Hi Rebels,
We are holding an ‘unconference style event’ where the audience takes part throughout. Are accelerators changing and strengthening startups when they most need it? Does this formula that Y-Combinator have created work as well across the Globe?

We are challenging the conventional way to build a startup or scale-up. With a focus on team building, developers and product management. How to speed up this process with the ‘Fail Fast’ mantra and collaborate/ build with an interchangeable toolkit.

The Party Isn’t Over: A Deep-Dive into Why #Unicorns Will Bounce Back in 2017 http://bit.ly/2kx7PLP When Cowboy Ventures’ Aileen Lee coined the term “Unicorn” to describe privately-held startups worth more than $1 billion, she wanted to emphasize the rarity and elusiveness of these finds as a venture investor.

It was 2013, the #techsector was awash with investor dollars, Uber and Snapchat had raised large funding rounds at eye-popping valuations, #incubators and #accelerators were all the rage, and @ElonMusk had announced his Hyperloop project.

We are looking for more speakers & panellists and/or appoint on the night.. as we want this to be a big debate. NB we have limited space of 75 so please sign up soon.
