Sten has a portfolio of tech startup experience matched by few others based in the UK. From starting his own business aged 17, to onefinestay, Deliveroo and founding Zego in 2016, Sten is perfectly placed to share all on:
✓ Setting up and scaling in fintech.
✓ The gig economy - there’s plenty of room left for disruption!
✓ Raising serious funds as a fintech business.
✓ The journey of Zego to date - and plans to go international.
Expect to hear from Sten on what is currently cutting edge in the fintech, insurtech and gig-economy sectors, 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 Sten Saar?
Since founding Zego in 2016, Sten has been instrumental growing the team from 2 to 48 full-time employees. Back in 2007, he was nominated as Europe's Young Entrepreneur by Bloomberg Businessweek, for the business he founded at age 17, which traded in four different countries with a net revenue of $1m. Sten then worked Quickstart Global, expanding their international presence and then onefinestay where he focussed on building the service delivery function as head of operations. Before Zego, Sten worked for Deliveroo developing their operational infrastructure to support the rapid growth of the business.

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.
