Bristol to host first inspiring monthly event for its thriving startup community on March 21st 2017Posted on: 17 Mar 2017
We’ve long-known that Bristol is one of the very best places in the country to start a business. These events will support and nurture the city’s start-up community and the first is scheduled for 5:30pm on Tuesday 21st March 2017 at City Hall, College Green.
These monthly ‘Startup Stories’ events draw on the knowledge and expertise of the Bristol startup community itself. Inspiring talks and Q&As will be on offer and feature those who have undertaken the journey themselves. They will share their stories - their successes and failures – in order that you might grow your business in the best way possible.
There will also be opportunities to talk to, learn from, share and network with like-minded people, whether they’re established, just starting out or aspiring entrepreneurs and new business owners.
The first event in the series will feature a talk by Dina Ntziora and Doug Francis of ArtSpace LifeSpace, which recycles vacant, under-used and problem properties into thriving creative resources. They will share details of their own fascinating journey, from taking on their first building to growing into a sustainable, self-funded business.
Konichiwa’s Creative Director Ursula Hutchinson says: “We’re proud of Bristol’s reputation as a versatile hub for startups and independent business. The aim of these events is to provide a regular platform that supports and connects the city’s vibrant startup community and bring together the creative, inspiring people that make it what it is.”
This is just the beginning. Konichiwa and Indies in Bristol are planning many exciting things, including a collaboration with The Bristol Food Tour, new café Milk Teeth and a number of exciting outdoor summer events.
The event runs from 5:30pm until 7pm and pre-paid tickets are just £5 each. Drinks and refreshments are included and you can purchase tickets here. Address: The Vestibules, City Hall, College Green, Bristol BS1 5TR.
