Plymouth's newest network launched with the first ever Starting Post on 25 July in Moments Cafe, Plymouth. Booking is now open for the next meet-up on 26 September.
The first ever Starting Post, held on Tuesday 25 July, saw the Formation Zone at University of Plymouth welcome the start-up community to Moments Café for an evening of business networking, inspiring talks, and delicious cake.
The packed crowd listened attentively to Bird Sunglasses' start-up story, and were inspired by their Share Your Sun project, while picking up some really useful tips for any start-up business. From forming an idea, to market research and connecting with suppliers, Ed and Paul Bird's talk showed that, with a good idea and a lot of hard work, it's possible to launch a brand that captures the imagination.
As well as being treated to a delicious cake to help celebrate the launch of Plymouth's only start-up business network, our audience heard more about our plans for the network and let us know what they would find useful at future events.
Overall, it was a brilliant way to launch the Starting Post and plans are already in place for the next one on Tuesday 26 September, 5-7pm at the Reservoir Cafe on the University of Plymouth campus. The start-up story will be from Amber Leach of Liberty Pearl Photography and the ‘how to’ session will be delivered by Raphael Dennet of AE Group on how to pitch.
Delivered in partnership by Formation Zone at the University of Plymouth, and Santander, these bimonthly events aim to be inspiring and informative, as well as giving you the chance to meet fellow entrepreneurs at the same stage as you. You can add the November date to your diary already, it’s confirmed for Tuesday 28 November, between 5pm and 7pm.
