Next week sees dinners happening for those wanting to connect with established brands and those looking for press coverage. Two fantastic speakers are waiting in the wings, eager to impart their wisdom. Read on to find out more about each one, and be sure to book your place at dinner too.
Dine with Starcom MediaVest: connecting established brands with startups
As a new business, it can sometimes feel impossible to reach established brands and corporates. Even when you know your offering could be of massive value to them. Join us for dinner, drinks & a chance to meet fellow entrepreneurs, followed by an after-dinner talk and informal Q&A with Jim Kite, Starcom MediaVest’s Strategic Development Director.
Starcom MediaVest Group is a media and advertising agency obsessed with technology, data and people. They work with clients including Samsung, P&G, Lidl & Heineken (to ‘name drop’ a little). At dinner, Jim will talk about things from the other side of the table,
- what brands are looking for
- what challenges they face, and
- how to grab their attention
He’ll also spill the beans with examples of how SMG brands have worked with startups in the past, together with upcoming opportunities.
Dinner is at 6:45pm on Monday 21 March at The Folly, Monument
