We’ll enjoy dinner and drinks followed by a talk and informal Q&A with Daniel Benamran, UK Country Manager at BlaBlaCar.

BlaBlaCar is a marketplace where you can find a driver who is driving from one city to another and book a seat in advance. Drivers can make a bit of money while riders can travel for cheap. BlaBlaCar is one of the most exciting French startups having raised a massive $100 million round last summer to create a global long distance ride-sharing network.

More recently BlaBlaCar aquired its German competitor Carpooling.com, as well as Hungary-based competitor AutoHop. After these two deals, BlaBlaCar will have 20 million members in 18 markets mostly in Europe — India was the company’s first expansion beyond Europe.

Daniel will share BlaBlaCar's story as well as expansion strategy and how the company plans to continue to grow to gain global control and domination of the car sharing the market. Take the opportunity to talk to Daniel one-on-one over a delicious meal.

*Hot off the press* BlaBlaCar have just raised $200m in funding. We look forward to hearing how this will impact on future plans.

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

Daniel Benamran is General Manager UK at BlaBlaCar, the world leading ridesharing community that connects drivers who have empty seats with people travelling the same way.

Shortly after joining the Marketing team in the Paris headquarters, Daniel moved to London to open the UK office and support the international expansion of the fast-growing company. Daniel holds a Masters in Management from EM Lyon, gained after studies in Lyon and Shanghai. He started his career in private equity, and before joining BlaBlaCar he participated in the early stages of the leading French crowdfunding platform, KissKissBankBank.

His experiences bring him a global vision of the challenges inherent to scaling collaborative consumption models.
