Tim Brownstone, CEO from KYMIRA Sports will share his two Kickstarter experiences. KYMIRA was founded to constantly strive to innovate within the fields of Medical Technology and Clean Tech. We are now working on adapting the technology for medical purposes, as well as engineering our first Clean Tech solution.

Ken Mawbey, Founder of AroundThen will share his experience of crowdfunding on Seedrs. AroundThen allows users to view and connect with each other on LinkedIn based on their proximity within the past 24 hours.

And Swap A Skill?

In it’s simplest form connecting entrepreneurs, innovators and startups together with the skills they need to help make their businesses successful. Startups can rarely afford full time help but if we can build up a matrix of people in the region we can start to populate a shared resource scheme where everyone benefits.

So if you are a startup looking for help or are able to offer technology startups your services come and meet up. It might be that you are looking to trade your skills in return for help with a start up idea you might have. This is all about collaboration and helping build businesses not coming to “sell” your services.

You might be a software developer, SEO guru, person with access to finance etc…… We welcome all as long as you come in the spirit of collaboration.

If you aren’t seeking funding but like beer, pizza and some great company come along too.

Something for everyone, well actually yes!
