Business Presentation

Ever wondered what it’s like on the other side of the table? Eyal Malinger is responsible for Countrywide’s growth and venture investments and has seen his fair share of pitches from start-up teams. After last week’s PropertyTech dinner, we wanted to share Eyal’s insights. Read these seven things Eyal notices before you meet your next VC!

  1. Team dynamic. I am a keen observer of how people work together.
  2. Knowledge. Whether you know your facts about the industry. Be it property, security or food, the VC will know it! Know your competitors.
  3. Preposterous assumptions. Your assumptions have to be robust and your projections should be realistic. However, don’t be too conservative – if you’re pitching something, it must have the potential to be big.
  4. Follow-ups and responses. Whether it went well or bad, email them after. Keep an Excel spreadsheet of your contacts, and keep in touch with your contacts via updates. Don’t nag them but send them a ping. Keep people posted, even if you don’t know them, it’s a network that you have to keep alive.
  5. Not leaving your job! Are you serious about this if you’re still working on something else?
  6. What is your IT strategy? I want to know if you’re outsourcing your IT.
  7. Pitch in 20 seconds very clearly. Make sure your business idea is easy to communicate.

For more inspiring tips from investors, keep in the loop with our fundraising dinners.

With a total of five dinners spread across three days, this has certainly been a jam-packed week here at TableCrowd. We’ve split our roundup into two separate posts (find the other one here) because we’ve got so much to fill you in on! From the beautiful arches of the Royal Exchange on Monday for our dinner for London FoodTech Week, to Aubaine Mayfair on Tuesday with our PropertyTech dinner, to The Avenue, Pall Mall on Wednesday for our beauty bloggers dinner, we’ve been all over the capital dining and networking with like-minded folk. Read on to hear our highlights…

rexLondon FoodTech Week – Successfully funding your food business
As part of London FoodTech Week, we hosted a dinner at the sumptuous surroundings of the Royal Exchange in Bank where we were joined by a panel of speakers: Michael Wilkinson, Head of Equity Investments at Crowdcube, Ben Pugh, founder at FarmDrop and Oliver Pugh, founder and CEO at EarlyBird who successfully funded their businesses using CrowdCube. Ben and Oliver having both gone through the CrowdCube process, shared their experience using this fundraising platform:

There are no silver bullets; just work damn hard

The panel advised potential CrowdCube companies to be sensible and realistic about valuation and ultimately:

Be scrappy or go home.

oisinThe future of mobile marketing with Oisin Lunny
Also on Monday night, we were over at The Green in Clerkenwell to discuss the future of mobile marketing with Oisin Lunny. With technology changing as quickly as it is, mobile marketing is becoming more important than ever. As Oisin outlined, we are embracing mobile use wholeheartedly – it is the fastest growing market. 73% of world’s population now have a mobile phone. There are more active mobile connections than people. More people have access to a mobile phone than to a toothbrush. 6 billion people worldwide use mobile messaging, so as you can see: it’s kind of a big deal. Oisin quoted The Economist’s take on the situation:

We are now a planet of smart phones populated by homo sapiens.

From 1990 onwards, we saw the The Age of Information take place, and recently, we have seen the dawn of The Age of the Consumer. There are 3 things on the mobile market mind at the moment:

  1. ‘CEx’ – the ability to transform customer experience
  2. Turning Big Data into data insights
  3. Becoming a digital disrupter

The best examples of companies who are leveraging the mobile successfully are those such as Uber, who are proactively serving consumers based on their context. Apple Pay, in addition, is a good example of a completely closed system.

We are tech-rich and time-poor.

We have a personal relationship with our phones and because of this companies are trying different ways to getting through to people through local advertising. For example, Google, promote local suggestions and thereby add value to the home consumer through the crossover between functionality and marketing.
aubaine2Property tech dinner with Eyal Malinger
We were talking about property at dinner on Tuesday night at Aubaine, and we were lucky enough to be joined by CountryWide‘s Eyal Malinger. Eyal is responsible for Countrywide’s growth and venture investments. He spoke a bit about the challenges of getting seen by a big corporate.

It’s hard because these companies are so opaque.

He advised to use websites such as LinkedIn to connect with investors from large corporate companies. People are on these sites, he says, because they want to be responded to! Eyal advised what he callsl ‘the side door method’. Instead of approaching the person right at the top, go sideways. Send a brief email (this should be one screen…don’t forget that people tend to read emails on their phone!) and ask who that person would recommend that you talk to in that company.

Eyal also gave his advice on approaching VCs by talking a bit about his experience on the receiving end from start-ups. For further information on this topic, check out Eyal’s post here.

Our speakers were joined by: Popcorn Kitchen, FarmDrop, Born Social, EarlyBird, CrowdCube, Gozo Deli, iguacu, OpenMarket, BlisMedia, MoveBubble, BillHub, i Am the agent, CarSpring, Bungaloow and Valimpex amongst others.

Special thanks to our speakers, Oisin, Michael, Ben, Oliver and Eyal for all their great advice and tips, and to our partners, Alma CG and FixFlo.

Another busy week here at TableCrowd with three dinners of diverse subjects. We kicked off the week on Tuesday with a dinner about child-friendly co-working and we were joined by Cllr Sarah Hayward, leader of Camden Council for a discussion about options for flexible childcare. On Wednesday, we had tapas and drinks with Daniel Benamram from BlaBlaCar and guests from the sharing economy, whilst over at Lima Floral we caught up with Sheena Morjaria from TIS Ventures to hear about her role in the start-up adventure.

coworkCo-working and flexible childcare dinner with Cllr Sarah Hayward
We had a great discussion about flexible childcare at The Green on Tuesday night, and we were fortunate to be joined by Cllr Sarah Hayward, leader of Camden Council. Sarah has a special interest in options for women who want to continue to work after having children, and it was great to have a speaker from the political sector to join in the debate.

Sarah spoke about the difficulties of introducing flexible hours in the corporate world. Camden Council are working with small and medium business yet there are still difficulties for these companies to have flexible working hours. Nevertheless, local tech companies are the ones who are more open to workers having flexible hours. Sarah also mentioned how the integration back into the workplace for women after they’ve had children can be difficult, and this isn’t helped by the recession.

limatisDine with TIS Ventures, seed investors in UK, Middle East & India
Over at Lima Floral, we had the pleasure of dining with Sheena Morjaria from TIS Ventures. TIS Ventures is a Dubai-based venture capital and corporate advisory boutique, and Sheena was in town for just a few days this week so we were glad we caught her!

In the tech world, you either evolve or die.

For Sheena, evolution is very important for start-ups; if something isn’t working, don’t keep banging the drum. She explained how TIS Ventures works, as they are involved in investments from the very beginning. They work from incubation level right to the finish, which can be a very intense relationship. As she says:

We’re like your friends and family, but not as nice!

Despite this, she attests that people are surprisingly approachable in this arena, and encouraged her diners not to be daunted by preconceptions of venture capitalists.
masqmenosDine with BlaBlaCar – 2o million members in 18 countries
Last but not least at dinner on Wednesday, we also got the chance to hear about the evolution of BlaBlaCar, Europe’s largest ride-sharing website whose aim is to rival trains on price and convenience. BlaBlaCar’s cost-sharing model means there is no profit involved, and also their initial focus was to concentrate on making their rides cheaper than trains, as they progress, they also become more convenient as more drivers sign up. Daniel said the dream is to connect the whole of Europe so that eventually you will be able to use their service to ride from Scotland to Germany, all in the comfort of a BlaBlaCar!

The concept keeps me motivated all the time.

Daniel has been with BlaBlaCar since their early days and on Wednesday night he shared with us some of his tips on how to grow a business:

  • Adapt your product to make it relevant to each country.
  • Tackle people’s perception of your business. We worked on our insurance policy to make sure people felt confident using something unfamiliar.
  • Invest in your PR. We worked with journalists closely to ensure they understood how it worked.
  • Think about specific partnerships. E.g. we launched at music festivals as we knew BlaBlaCar would appeal to students.
  • Paid marketing campaigns pay off!

Our speakers were joined by: MyBeautyMatches.com, Aztec Ventures, WellVine, Huntable, MyGravity, Bubblo, movivo, Winkley Studios, Third Door, Unilever, Bloomsbury Beginnings, London Early Years Foundation, Startup Mums, Deutsche Bank, Work&Wellness, Haven+Hive, Officrèche, Harden’s, Localoids, myDriver, Compare and Share, Atomico, and Indusa amongst others.

Special thanks to our speakers, Sarah Hayward, Sheena Morjaria and Daniel Benamran.

Check out our upcoming TableCrowd dinners to see if you’ll be joining us soon.

You may have heard the name ‘BlaBlaCar’ bandied around at the moment and it certainly is a company that’s made us sit up and listen, did you see that they just raised $200m? Next week, we’re lucky enough to have Daniel Benamran, the UK Country Manager of dining with us at one our new venues, Mas Q Menos. Alternatively, come and join the conversation about flexible childcare on Tuesday night at The Green, or why not swing by on Wednesday night to dine with Sheena Morjaria from TIS Ventures, a Dubai-based venture capital fund that invests in the UK, Middle East and India? Phew, a busy week ahead!

nwdcoworkTISVBlaBlaChild friendly co-working & business
A slightly different style of dinner this time, with an open discussion about co-working spaces and the future of childcare. The lack of affordable and flexible childcare options in the UK is an ongoing problem, and Ann Nkune from Bloomsbury Beginnings, who runs parent workspace sessions, and Leo Wood, director of Winkley Studios and Cooks Yard coworking spaces and PlayPen, a weekly cowork&crèche session, will be with us to lead the discussion about workspace providers and child-friendly businesses. Come along to network and share ideas about this relevant topic for parents and businesses alike.
Dinner is at 6:45pm on Tuesday 29 September at The Green, Clerkenwell.

Dine with TIS Ventures, seed investors in UK, Middle East & India
We’re so pleased that Sheena Morjaria, Managing Partner of TIS Ventures, will be providing an after-dinner talk and informal Q&A at dinner whilst she is in town for a couple of days from Dubai. She will be talking about when she invests, the differences between the markets in the UK, Middle East and India, as well as the strategic advantages of having an investor across multiple regions. Get face time with Sheena at this dinner and discuss some of the ideas you’ve been working on.
Dinner is at 6:45pm on Wednesday 30 September at Lima Floral, Covent Garden

Dine with BlaBlaCar – 20 million members in 18 countries (*hot off the press, just raised $200m)
Daniel Benamran, BlaBlaCar‘s UK Country Manager,  will be sharing their story, expansion strategy and how the company plans to continue to grow to gain global control and domination of the car sharing market. Daniel’s experiences bring him a global vision of the challenges inherent to scaling a business. This dinner will be an amazing opportunity to network with others in the sharing industry as well as talk to Daniel informally over a delicious dinner.
Dinner is at 6:45pm on Wednesday 30 September at Mas Q Menos, The City

With our next PropertyTech dinner on the horizon, we thought this was a great time to share our catch up with James Harrison, who attended our last PropertyTech dinner back in May. As the founder of BillHub, James is changing the way tenants live together. By bringing utilities into the 21st Century, they offer a digital solution that better fits the needs of the modern housing market. Find out more from James in this week’s #BusinessSpotlight:

11714415_10153347325936068_586245167_nWhat’s the elevator pitch for your business?
We’re revolutionising the way housemates live together. The technology behind our platform redefines convenience, transparency and security for renters. It’s free to use and perfect for housemates who are looking to simplify the process behind shared bills. The housing situation in the UK is fundamentally changing the way we live together and one area that has seen massive growth is shared accommodation. Currently, there’s a void in the market for products and services that adequately fit the needs of these types of renters, and that’s what we’re changing. 

What were you doing before you launched the company?
I was a commodities trader, specialising in energy. It was a great job and certainly suited my entrepreneurial personality. The pressure was immense and the hours were long, however, I can’t say much has changed since.

If you have co-founders, where did you meet them?
Carlos and I met through a friend. At the time, we were working in a similar area of the City. He was working at a bank, developing high frequency trading algorithms for the energy markets, among other things. Although we were working at opposite ends of the trading world, we were both engaged in the same markets, so we started going to lunch, mainly comparing our views and different perspectives. It didn’t take long for us both to work out that we wanted to do something different.

What’s your biggest hindsight moment?
Before our recent name change, we shared a certain part of our name with an unnamed multinational company. Over the last two years, we’ve proved exceptionally popular; unfortunately this has put us in the spotlight, somewhat. After lengthy discussions, spanning more than six months,  we decided to change our name.

Screenshot 2015-08-25 15.13.14

What will the rest of 2015 bring?
We’re working hard to develop some great new features for September, which is a busy time of the year for our student market. We’re in a rapidly evolving industry within the property rental/utility market. There is so much opportunity for tech innovation that the possibilities are endless.

We’re also really interested to see how the property market moves forward post election. We think a BoE rate increase towards the end of the year would be good for the rental market as mortgages increase, although this seems unlikely until early 2016. 

One piece of advice for someone starting a business in your sector?
Just start. Whatever you want to do, there’s no time like the present! And don’t let the word ‘no’ stop you. 

Convince someone to use your product/service in under 50 words.
No one likes talking about bills. We don’t want you or your house mates to have to think about bills, let alone discuss them. We make sure you’re getting the best deal for you and then we consolidate all your household bills into one. More free time for what you love.

What’s your favourite startup in your sector?
I love eMoov. I’d say they’re among the leading companies behind the property technology movement at the moment. 

What’s your favourite London restaurant?
Shake shack, no doubt about it!

What’s your favourite meal?
Pizza. I’m slightly ashamed to say I’ve had my fair share of ‘Two for Tuesdays’…

Last week was a busy week, we had seven TableCrowd dinners happening across a variety of sectors, including WedTech, playing the stock market, Food & Beverage industry, PropertyTech and more. Here’s the rundown of what nuggets of wisdom our speakers imparted on their fellow diners: wedtechdinnerWedTech at Aubaine, Heddon St
We held an intimate dinner for those in the wedding industry with our co-host Sachin, Founder of Think Shaadi, discussing how technology is impacting the £10 billion UK wedding industry. Following the usual round-the-table introductions the diners chatted en mass about wedding trends and how to work together in such a big industry. With tech being a relatively new thing in the UK wedding industry, it was agreed by all that a lot of venues, dressmakers, and photographers are still using basic technology and definitely need to catch up! For the wedding industry, the most useful marketing tools are still word of mouth, with everyone stressing the importance of customer reviews.

foodUrban Food Fest at Piccolino, Exchange Square
Both Mike and Jessica joined us from Urban Food Fest to discuss the London street food scene and how it has revolutionised the way London eats! Founded two years ago, Urban Food Fest is a street food market based in Shoreditch occurring every Saturday. Around 15 food stalls – including a V corner for vegans and vegetarians – are surrounded by lots of bars and live music to entertain and delight the crowds that attend. Starting with a pop up status, their festival is now a regular event and they have expanded into corporate and private events including one for Henry Cavell, Apple and Volkswagen.

Ultimately, the team at Urban Food Fest love being a platform for so many diverse people who want to share their passion for food. For our diners, Mike’s top tips all related to networking and how it is crucial to success.

Business is person to person. Get over any inhibitions about talking to people and get out there and just do it!

You’ll never know where the conversations might lead. So, remember – always bring your business cards with you, be prepared and be passionate!

fashionpressdinnerHow to charm the Fashion Press
Diners were in for a treat at our Fashion Press dinner as they had two speakers, Alison Levy, Global Director of Brand Development at Fashion GPS and Tansy Aspinall, co-founder of Tada & Toy. The great thing about this dinner, apart from the amazing food at Mint Leaf Lounge, was the opportunity to garner insight into the accessibility of fashion magazines from both a PR and brand perspective. Both ladies had such insightful and worthwhile information, that we have a whole separate post dedicated to their top tips. Take a look at it here.

Tony Wollenberg on playing the stock market
Last Tuesday saw a group of diners joining serial entrepreneur and stock market guru, Tony Wollenberg for dinner at Aubaine where his market successes and failures were discussed over food. Tony had some great advice for those interested in playing the stock market which identified that whatever you’re doing in the markets, it certainly won’t be a boring journey up, or down. His honest depiction of crashes in the stock market led him to describe them as “cataclysmic, seismic events” that are “the times when you can make the most money.”

You can be greedy when others are fearful, and fearful when others are greedy.

acceldinnerDinner with Luciana Lixandru, Accel Partners
The private dining room at Jamie’s Italian in Piccadilly was the backdrop for our fundraising dinner with Luciana Lixandru, Vice President and an early stage investor at Accel. Providing a brief history of the company, Luciana explained that Accel was built in Silicon Valley 30 years ago, and in Europe they invest $0.5 billion dollars. This is usually invested in early stage to growth businesses, and the sweet spot is often around £10 million for the initial investment. Accel’s ‘Claim to Fame’ is that they were the first to invest in Facebook!

Luciana’s top tip was:

Be straightforward and make it easy for VCs to understand you

proptechdinnerPropertyTech
A vibrant evening with lots of lovely guests was the feedback from our host with regards to our Property Tech dinner with Ed Freyfogle, in partnership with Wellers and our co-host Fixflo. Ed shared the story of Lokku, including lessons he learnt whilst at Yahoo about getting annihilated by Google, analysing Yahoo’s site and realising how cluttered it was. He stressed the importance of making sure you understand the value chain of your piece of the business.

His top tips were:

  • Keep your endurance and stick with it
  • Control the things you can control, don’t spend too much time worrying about the things you can’t
  • The better you do at serving the consumer, the more money you make
  • As you go on your journey, don’t forget to enjoy it

Click here for all the tips provided by Sarah Jossel at the ‘Getting into the Glossys’ dinner.

A big thanks goes to our speakers Mike, Alison, Tansy, Tony, Ed and Luciana, and our partners Fixflo, Wellers, Taylor Wessing and SilkFred.

Last night we had our second PropertyTech dinner and like the previous one, it was a brilliant night of good conversation, sharing of insights and lovely food & wine. We were joined by Juliette Morgan, head of Property at Tech City UK, who gave an insightful talk over dessert which inspired a lively discussion.

“A great evening spent with smart people who are focused on making properties and the property market work better.  Around the table there was a sense that there has never been a better time to be involved in PropTech in the UK. Industry leaders across the property market now widely recognise the efficiency benefits to the built environment and the competitive advantages to their businesses that can achieved through adopting innovative technologies.”

We were joined by 20 different innovative PropertyTech startups including PayProp, Movebubble, EnergyDeck, WigWamm, HideoutHostels and lots more.
