About this event

"The future of pharmacy is digital"

This year at Startup Grind, our goal is host the founders of the fastest growing tech businesses in the country to the Startup Grind stage to share insights others can learn from. There's no better way than to kick off that goal than by welcoming Nadeem Sarwar, the Founder & CEO of Phlo.

Phlo is a Digital Pharmacy based in Glasgow and London. In just over a year, Phlo has scaled to a team of over 40, raised £4.5+ million and are now seeing double-figure (%) revenue growth month after month. Most recently, Phlo raised just over £2 million in crowdfunding, allowing them to fuel their future growth.

We'll be discussing how to transition from start-up to scale-up, the future of digital health and the mindset required to compete with the big players.

A little more about our guest:

Nadeem Sarwar is the Founder and CEO Phlo Digital Pharmacy. Nadeem was formally a career commercial banker before founding Phlo in 2015. He is responsible for all company operations and the overall development and building of Phlo.

His simple goal is to build Phlo into the number one, on-demand digital pharmacy service in the UK, helping patients like him access their medication when and where they want it.

Community in Virtual Times

Since the success of our 2020 End of Year Social, we wanted to keep things lively and provide a virtual space for connection to catch up with old friends, make new ones and share grand ideas and learnings with each other. With that in mind, we’re excited to invite you to use Remo!

Remo is a virtual platform where you can interact face-to-face and move around a ‘room’ to different tables to meet and talk with other people. 

If you’ve not used it before here is a quick introduction to the platform (it’s really easy)!

Ticket Price: This is to help cover the cost of the Remo platform. The SG Scotland team are fully voluntary and host these events to bring people and ideas together.

Join us on February 10th to hear how in just over a year, Nadeem took his company from start-up to scale-up and disrupted digital health in the UK and beyond.
