Follow the Entrepreneur Conference - Spear's Magazine

Follow the Entrepreneur Conference

Follow The Entrepreneur 2014 is an invitation-only investor summit hosted in association with RBC Wealth Management, taking place on Friday 5 September at the Four Seasons Hotel, Hampshire, UK. There is a dinner in the evening.

 

Organised by Ariadne Capital, the fourth Follow The Entrepreneur Investor Summit will address the leadership role of entrepreneurs in changing the way we live and the transformational impact that they have on all aspects of society.

 

Follow The Entrepreneur is unique because its starting point is:

> Society works best when it is organised around the entrepreneur/the industrialist/those men and women who understand the future and are living abnormal lives to bring it to the present;

> Technology is no longer an industry; it’s a layer providing growth and driving prosperity; and

> Capital Follows Ideas – always has, always will.

 

ATTENDEES

Since its launch in 2010, Follow The Entrepreneur has rapidly established itself as one of the key events on the calendar and a must attend for those interested in learning more about new opportunities for investment.

 

The day offers an unrivalled opportunity for partners to engage with some of the leading authorities in global entrepreneurship, access more than 150 high net worth individuals and an exceptional range of Europe’s leading entrepreneurs whose portfolio companies are prime candidates for IPO’s and other corporate finance transactions.
