We’ll enjoy dinner, drinks & a chance to meet fellow entrepreneurs, followed by an after-dinner talk and informal Q&A with Mopp founders, Pete Dowds and Tom Brooks.

Mopp is an online marketplace that allows you to book a trusted home cleaner in under 60 seconds. The company was founded in April last year and since then they have been busy. They raised a $1.5 million seed round at the end of the last year from a leading European VC, grew their team to 35 people at HQ and expanded to 10 cities. They are currently raising a series A round. They have plenty of insights to share on fundraising and scaling fast.

Hot off the press news since this dinner was arranged, Mopp has been acquired - full details here: http://techcrunch.com/2014/09/22/handy-mopp/

Take this chance to talk to the guys and ask all those burning questions, informally over dinner.

The £34 booking fee includes private dining experience, 2 course dinner and drinks plus relevant networking.

We'll be dining on Pan Asian food in the lovely private dining room upstairs.
