Join us for dinner, drinks & a chance to meet fellow entrepreneurs, followed by an after-dinner talk and informal Q&A with Sheena Morjaria, who's only in town for a couple of days from Dubai.

She'll be talking after dinner about when she invests, the differences between the markets in the UK, Middle East and India and the strategic advantages of having an investor across multiple regions.

Sheena is Managing Partner of TIS Ventures. Operating out of Dubai with associates and operational businesses in London, Kenya and Mumbai, they are early stage investors providing seed capital and expansion funding, incubation including mentoring and business support for start-ups and SMEs, across media, tech and digital platforms. They have a powerful network across the regions they operate in.

They normally invest in the seed/angel stage and work anywhere between $50,000 to $250,000. They also work with start-ups looking to raise more and take this to their external pool of investors.

Take this opportunity to gain some invaluable face time with Sheena over dinner and discuss some of the ideas you have been working on.

Price includes private dining experience with after dinner speaker, 2 course dinner with wine and highly curated and relevant networking.
