Started by:

We’ll enjoy dinner, drinks & a chance to meet fellow entrepreneurs, followed by an after-dinner talk and informal Q&A with Ingrid Lunden. Ingrid will share her story as well as offer tips for those looking to secure coverage for their startups.

Ingrid is a writer and editor for TechCrunch, joining February 2012, based out of London. Generally, she writes (and edits) news and news analysis - from startup stories to pieces about bigger fish like Apple. Her preference is for a consumer rather than enterprise focus, although she writes about both.

Take this chance to meet Ingrid and to talk to her informally over dinner.

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


P.S. TableCrowd are offering complimentary cab rides home (£15) thanks to their partner, Get Taxi! on first download of the app. Details on the night.

Ingrid is a writer and editor for TechCrunch, joining February 2012, based out of London.

Currently working full-time at as a writer and international editor. Based out of London but covering all regions/companies. Always on the lookout for news that would be of interest to TC's readers.

Prior to this she worked full-time as a staff reporter for and, based out of London. This is a business news-led site, with a second emphasis on news analysis, focused on the intersection of media and technology.

Prior to this she spent 3+ years as a freelance journalist, also based in London, writing and editing articles mainly about the TMT sectors and occasionally other topics (eg visual art, culture). She also ran media training sessions and provided consulting services for companies in the TMT sector (because: freelance!).

When freelance she worked for a number of titles, including the Financial Times (regular contributor to the Digital Business/now Connected Business section); Total Telecom; off-and-on for paidContent and mocoNews; VentureBeat; supplements in the Times (London).

From 2001 to 2007 she worked for CommunicationsWeek International (predecessor to Total Telecom); Total Telecom and Total Content+Media - respectively as a production editor, assistant editor and launch editor.

From 1995 to 2001, she worked for The Art Newspaper both in London and New York, also in a range of editorial roles.

When it comes to work, she feels most comfortable speaking in English but can also speak Russian, Spanish and French (in descending order of competence).
