Upstream Drinks – “Founding Values” with BBC Worldwide Labs, Huckletree & iPLATO

24 May 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for the inaugural Upstream drinks & talk

At the March launch of the Upstream report, we brought together incredible people from global companies, tech and creative start-ups who call Hammersmith & Fulham home. But it was just the beginning.  On Wednesday 24 May in the MediaWorks building at White City Place, we will hold “Founding Values”, an in-conversation style event with Tobias Alpsten, founder and CEO of health tech scale-up iPLATO, Annie Krukowska, Programme Director of accelerator BBC Worldwide Labs and Andrew Lynch, COO and co-founder of co-working company Huckletree</a>.

Discussion will centre on how founders decide on their values at the outset, how values are maintained as they scale, if and how values evolve and what employees can do to influence their company’s values.  Annie Krukowska in particular will comment on the values of successful start-ups she sees in the running of an accelerator.

We anticipate this evening will be of interest to anyone

·  leading or working in start-ups or scale-ups

·  working in a large company, championing a more entrepreneurial style of working

·  with entrepreneurial ambitions who hasn’t yet taken the plunge and

·  who wants to get to know other entrepreneurs in the neighbourhood and have a look at the great new MediaWorks space.

The conversation will be led by <a href=”https://thisiscaffeine.com/team/sophie-devonshire/”>Sophie<a href=”https://thisiscaffeine.com/team/sophie-devonshire/”></a> Devonshire, entrepreneur and author of Superfast: How to Lead at Speed (out later this year).

We very much hope you will join us on the evening of Wednesday 24 May!
