“A dinner for London’s Startup Women to break bread, network, share contacts & experiences”

Last night was the third in a series of industry dinners, following on from TableCrowd’s Food Startups “Meet & Eat” last month and TableCrowd & SilkFred’s Fashion Startups Meet & Eat. Some of London’s most exciting women led startups gathered at Central Working in Google Campus for dinner and networking. If you’re familiar with Central Working, you’ll know that by day it’s bursting at the seams with developers, techies and founders, all hard at work on their startups. After hours however, with the expert help of Central Working, the space is made perfect for TableCrowd’s social dining experiences.

21 diners joined the dinner, which included the startups and their journalist, PR & blogger guests. For the startups, it was a great networking opportunity and for their guests, a one off opportunity to meet everyone on the scene in one night. Wine was drunk. Fun was had! A big thank you to all the ladies (and the 2 gents) for being part of the evening.

TableCrowd was joined by:

- Swiftkey
- Tank Top TV
- Simple 2 Connect
- Craft Candy
- Audio Byte
- Public Beta
- My Beauty Compare
- The Fetch London
- Dattch

And guests from:

- Tech City News

- Lion’s Cage
- love-for-fashion.blogspot.co.uk
- Tech City Insider
- The Telegraph

The evening started with some pre dinner drinks which gave everyone a chance to circulate and mingle. We dined on a summer Spanish themed spread including tortilla bites, homemade meatballs and paella. TableCrowd as host gave a short introductory talk as did Taylor Wessing, the event sponsors. After dining, we went round the table so that everyone could introduce themselves and/or their startup and there was more time to move around the table to speak to the people we hadn’t yet met.

Some photos for you to enjoy are below! The remainder of the photos will be posted on our Facebook page later this week.

A massive thanks to artwork sponsor, nerv and event sponsors Taylor Wessing and Start-up Direct for being part of the third in series of dinners for startups. Thanks also for Central Working for being tremendous hosts. The next dinner in the series will be announced soon.
