Enjoy a chance to meet…
Aaron Chatterley is Co-founder of Europe’s largest online beauty retailer Feelunique. Founded in 2005, the online platform sells more than 500 top beauty brands, including Chanel, Dior, Lancôme and Estee Lauder, to over 100 countries. Aaron led a partial sale of the business to private equity and stepped aside as CEO, with Palamon Capital Partners completing a £20m funding round in 2016. Aaron now works part-time for the company and remains a member of the board. As an active investor in tech and disruptive businesses he is truly well versed to talk about raising an investment round.
This is perfect for…
Startup founders and management at startups looking to raise investment. This dinner is open to a limited number of service providers / advisors (unless a TableCrowd partner). Please see the details under the 'Join this table' button.
If you'd like to join but don't fall neatly within the above categories, please email us at email@example.com to discuss whether this is the right event for you. Also feel free to check out our other events as another might match you perfectly!
The conversation will be…
As someone who has sat both sides of the table, as both a founder and as an investor, this is a great opportunity to learn from Aaron who will be talking about:
✓ When is the right time to raise investment?
✓ What do you need to have achieved to be investment ready?
✓ How to approach investors and the key mistakes founders typically make.
✓ Raising a big investment round - and understanding your exit strategy.
✓ His journey at Feelunique!
Who is Aaron Chatterley?
Aaron Chatterley is the co-founder of Europe’s largest online beauty retailer Feelunique. Aaron was among some of the first to become involved at the outset of the internet boom and in 1996 he set up award-winning web development company SP New Media, before selling it in June 2000 to an LSE listed software business. He then went on to become a SKY TV Commentator & Expert for Internet and Ecommerce, appearing on a popular technology panel show as well as several other SKY one-off technology specials before launching Feelunique.
How it works?
Due to COVID-19, this is a virtual dinner. You can dial in from your laptop or phone. Joining details will be circulated to attendees on the day. We ask for the same respect you would have at a face to face event - turn up on time, don't leave until after the Q&A and tell us if you are no longer able to attend.
A fully hosted experience with knowledgeable speaker and curated group of guests. There will be the usual introductions, talk from our speaker and then a hosted Q&A. Bring your own glass of wine, mint tea or Horlicks!
If you book a place and then can't make it, please make sure you tell us. An empty place at the table with your name card is not a great start to dinner!
