Scars and stories from founders trying to find funding and grow their business.
After a hugely successful inaugural event in Manchester, we’re taking Founder F*** Ups on the Road to Leeds! And we’re delighted to be part of the official lineup for Leeds Digital Festival!
The start-up scene isn’t short of people peddling their success stories. Every morning we wake up to a new ‘LinkedIn lesson’ or humble brag.
Founders are too often given conflicting advice from those who’ve never actually grown a company. Growing a business is hard, and the Founder Fuck Ups event series is about bringing us back to reality.
Hear from founders who’ve been there before and learned their lessons the hard way. More importantly, listen to what advice they wish they had beforehand. There will be a strict ‘no bullshit’ and ‘no judgment’ rule, and hopefully, everyone can enjoy some awkward stories we can all learn a little.
Hosted by Tania Rahman, Investment Manager at Praetura, we’ll be joined by:
- Chris Rabbitt, Founder – MEEOW Ltd
- Paul Hallett, Founder – VET AI
- Mitali Mookerjee, Co-Founder – CastRooms
- Harry Panter, Co-Founder & CEO of Housr
As is start-up tradition, beers, and refreshments will be included.
Hosted by Prolific North, Department, The Start-Up Factory, and Praetura Ventures. Part of Leeds Digital Festival.
