Started by:

We’ll enjoy dinner, drinks & a chance to meet fellow entrepreneurs and professionals, followed by an after-dinner talk and informal Q&A with Eric Collins, Head of Distribution & Monetisation at SwiftKey.

Sometimes the initial focus is on creating a valuable product or service with how to monetise taking a back seat. Eric will talk from extensive experience (see below) about how to monetise and will share important insights that can be applied to your strategy.

SwiftKey's mission is to make it easy for everyone to create and communicate on mobile. It uses AI to understand the context of what you're writing to accurately predict your next word.

SwiftKey has been named one of the top 10 most innovative mobile companies in the world by Fast Company and is currently ranked Wired's No 1 hottest startup in London.

Take this chance to meet Eric and to talk to him informally over dinner about what you’re working on.

Price includes private dining experience with after dinner speaker, 3 course dinner with wine and highly curated and relevant networking.

Proud to partner with Natwest who are providing their beautiful private dining room with views out onto Trafalgar Square for a delicious 3 course dinner.


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.

Eric Collins is SwiftKey’s Head of Distribution and Monetisation. Previously at Tegic, he joined SwiftKey’s London HQ in 2014. He is responsible for extending SwiftKey's market penetration through relationships with handset manufacturers, carriers, and app providers that has so far seen SwiftKey products shipped on over 250 million devices.

With a pedigree in mobile gained through extensive experience in the United States at AOL, Nuance and Mobile Posse, Eric has previously led teams through explosive consumer growth, establishing tier one distribution partnerships worldwide, as well as running business and corporate development for input software shipped on over five billion devices.
