Who is Richard Blakesley?
Richard is co-founder and CEO of Capital Pilot, the London-based fundraising platform for tech startups. Capital Pilot is the 13th startup Richard has been involved with in the past 15 years, so he has plenty of experience – good and bad – to draw on. Before moving into the early stage technology world, Richard spent 15 years as a mergers and acquisitions specialist for Lehman Brothers, Chase Manhattan and JP Morgan, where he was Managing Director in charge of telecoms and technology M&A.

What’s included?
You get a private dining experience with a knowledgeable speaker, 2 course dinner with wine or 2 soft drinks plus highly curated and relevant crowd. This is a dinner, not a dropin event, so we ask that guests turn up on time and don’t leave until after the Q&A.
