15 entrepreneurs to speak at tech start-up event


There’s just over a week to go until BusinessCloud’s ‘Tech Start-up Survival Guide’.

Less than half of start-ups will survive long enough to celebrate their fifth birthday and the failure rate in the tech sector is even higher.

On May 16th BusinessCloud will join forces with Tech Manchester to discuss everything from creating the perfect business plan; taking on the right investment; pivoting your business; getting the right mentor; recruiting; and turning a start-up into a scale-up.

An impressive line-up of 15 entrepreneurs have been confirmed for the event including Gary Rohloff, co-founder and managing director of Laybuy; Gemma McCall, co-founder of Culture Shift; Kobi McCardle, co-founder of Dr Fertility; Daniel Burton, CEO of Wondrwall Group; Nile Henry, CEO of The Blair Project; and Rechelle Davis, director of Energy Fairies.

They’ll be joined by Abdul Alim, CEO & co-founder of Bidooh; Anthony Chadwick, CEO of The Webinar Vet; Sean Murphy, director/consultant of Evidential; Anastasia Kenyon, founder of Kandi Cosmetics; Ben Hookway, CEO of Relative Insight; Jack Barmby, CEO of Gnatta; sisters Rachel and Laura Beattie, co-founders of Careaux; and Annie O’Toole, head of operations, Draw & Code and head of operations, SwapBots.
