You are warmly invited to Cambentrepreneurs' autumn thought leadership and networking event, co-hosted by Cambentrepreneurs and BCS Entrepreneurs, at BCS Covent Garden. 

In the words of startup guru David Skok, the main reasons startups fail, is that they run into the problem of there being little or no market for the product or service they have built, or they are too optimistic about how easy it will be to acquire customers. Other factors include weak management teams, and simply running out of cash. The list goes on.

For answers on how to avoid these pitfalls, we are delighted to welcome our expert speakers, who will to share their experience of advising and running startups.

Asaf Navot - Founder - Home Made (LinkedIn Profile)

Asaf’s focus on startup success draws directly on his experience as the founder of Home Made, the UK's leading residential property marketplace.

As well as his startup expertise, Asaf has extensive experience in strategy and operations, having previously advised blue chip corporations as a strategy consultant with Bain & Company and Wilson Perumal, and as a Captain in the Israeli Air Force.

Oren Greenburg - Owner - Kurve (LinkedIn Profile)

Oren’s expertise comes from running specialist growth consultancy, Kurve.

In his contribution to the discussion on the success or failure of startups, Oren will be drawing on his experience in managing a scalable network of experts, responsible for tailoring solutions for established large companies and high-velocity startups internationally.

Sean Lydon - Owner - Sean Lydon Sales (LinkedIn Profile)

Sean will be reflecting on his mission to equip business owners with a structured selling methodology, tailored to their specific value proposition, and what this means for startups.

In many B2B markets, whether for startups or established businesses, even with a compelling demonstration of value, people do not volunteer buying decisions: the value proposition must be sold.

Our speakers’ talks will be followed by a Q&A Panel Discussion, then networking over drinks and eats.
