About this event

We invited Alex Wood, Editor at Forbes Europe and Simon Cook, CEO at Draper Esprit PLC to talk about entrepreneurship and the role of media in today's startup & scaleup world.

You may know Alex as a journalist or as an entrepreneur, having built and exited The Memo to Forbes not so long ago. Alex is regularly seen on BBC, Sky, CNN or CNBC. He was writing for The Guardian, The Telegraph and was previously a TV producer at Bloomberg and data journalist at the BBC World Service.

Simon has been involved with a number of Europe’s most successful startups including Lovefilm (Amazon), Cambridge Silicon Radio (IPO), Virata (IPO), nCipher (IPO) and KVS (Symantec). Another smart move Draper Esprit did was to buy Seedcamp's first two funds.

If you would like to learn more about the media and VC world's, if you wonder how to get media coverage for your company and how to best present your story, join us on Thursday and learn from the unique perspective of Alex and Simon and learn useful principles when pitching to or talking to the media.
