Travel Startups #MeetandEat at Central Working, Google Campus
Love love love turning Central Working (at Google Campus) into an after-hours restaurant for TableCrowd startup dinners. After a day packed to the seams with developers, startups and entrepreneurs beavering away, using every bit of available space (and power socket), we turn things on their head as our members join us for networking and dinner.
We had a great line up of guests last night. TableCrowd were joined by:
> Richard Brownsdon from Inspiring Adventures who uses his connections in social enterprise, ecotourism and travel to create inspiring adventures for people in the UK and beyond. Richard shared his story with us in a great after-dinner talk.
> The founders of Guideress, wife and husband team, Erin and Alan Hale, who are working on a travel startup which provides tailored advice for visitors to our capital.
> Felipe Zalamea of Sumak Sustainable Travel, a social enterprise specialising in sustainable tailored trips to Latin America.
> Kate Andrews at Loco2, who’s simplifying travelling in Europe by train.
> Alec Dent at Bla Bla Car, a car sharing network connecting drivers and their empty car seats, with passengers.
In addition, we were joined by a developer in the travel space, a currency swap startup (who crowd sourced a name around the table!) and someone with an idea for tailored city escapes. With apologies from OneFineStay who couldn’t make it.
The evening started with welcome drinks before we sat for a delicious dinner courtesy of Central Working. After we had all dined, we had round-the-table introductions for everyone to introduce themselves and their business, before Richard Brownsdon finished off the evening with a great after dinner talk and Q&A.
Thank you to everyone that joined our travel startups dinner and made it a memorable and valuable evening.
Thank you to artwork sponsors, nerv, a full service digital agency that supports our #MeetandEat dinners.
