Join us for dinner, drinks & a chance to meet fellow entrepreneurs, followed by an after-dinner talk by Bethany Koby, founder of Technology Will Save Us, a business dedicated to sparking the imagination of young people using hands-on technology. They recently won Best Hardware Startup at the Europas.

They are creating the most accessible ecosystem of DIY gadget kits and resources to help families, educators and young people make, play, code and invent using technology. To better understand what they do, take a look at their "Mover Kit, the first educational wearable kids make & code", which is now on Kickstarter. The business has raised £1.2m from London based VCs, last year doubled in size and was stocked in John Lewis.

Bethany will be sharing her story over dinner, including insights into succeeding in the edtech sector, tales of fund raising and getting stocked in key retailers. Don’t miss this chance to meet her informally over dinner and to share what you’re working on.

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