Enjoy dinner drinks and a chance to meet…
Radha Vyas is co-founder of Flash Pack, an award-winning adventure travel company that brings together solo travellers in their 30s and 40s, curating spectacular trips around the world that empower people looking for challenge and escapism. Since Flash Pack launched in 2014 and after that first 6 months of make-or-break, the business has boomed, with 300% year-on-year growth! From winning a string of awards and picking up wall-to-wall press coverage, they now target an 8 figure turnover and have recently been valued at £10m. With this in mind, Radha will be sharing all on turning that initial eureka moment she had on a first date, into a £10m valued business!

This dinner is perfect for…
Female startup founders and female management level at startups. This dinner is not for service providers or advisors (unless a TableCrowd partner).
If you'd like to join but don't fall neatly within the above categories, please email us at hello@tablecrowd.com to discuss whether this is the right dinner for you. Also feel free to check out our other dinners as another might match you perfectly!

The dinner conversation will be…
Finding the perfect gap in the market and having the passion to follow through from initial eureka moment to scaling business, is key to many entrepreneurs leaving the rat race and finding success. With a wealth of experience in doing just that, Radha is the perfect person to talk about:
✓ Going from eureka moment to £10m valuation.
✓ When your co-founder is your partner! Tips on managing personal relationships in business.
✓ Tips for finding and then looking after your target customer.
✓ Building an international customer base and scaling abroad.
✓ The story of Flash Pack, from early struggles to employing 65+ staff!
Expect to leave with ideas and inspiration for your own business, as well as the opportunity to speak to others facing similar industry challenges and opportunities as you informally over dinner.

Who is Radha Vyas?
Radha Vyas is co-founder and chief executive of Flash Pack, an award-winning adventure travel company that brings together solo travellers in their 30s and 40s. Flash Pack is the brainchild of die-hard adventurists and wife and husband team, Radha Vyas and Lee Thompson, who first brainstormed the idea for Flash Pack on their first date after spending the evening discussing travel stories!

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.

Flash Pack’s mission is to create a great group dynamic between like-minded travellers, a goal that has seen them grow a powerful community of over 130,000 Flashpackers in more than 15 countries. Their vision is to create comfort-busting adventures that really get under the skin of a place via local and unique experiences. Think all the thrill of backpacking, elevated by boutique hotels and seamless itineraries.

Apart from a small seed round from Angel investors of 250k in 2016, they have been a very cash flow positive business and have been able to successfully fund their own growth from then.

Radha had previously built a successful fundraising consultancy business, raising over £9.2m for not-for-profit clients from ultra high-net-worth individuals.
