Fresh Business Thinking and Keystone Law have announced the details for their next popular funding breakfast series, taking place in London on Thursday 18 May.

Entrepreneur and speaker at the breakfast Rob O’Donovan, founded ‘start-up studio’ The Eleven at age 17, alongside his best friend from school. From then on, his love affair with creating companies grew, turning the business into a small network of marketing agencies that empowered brands to make sense of a new, digitally savvy and ultra-demanding generation of consumers.

The same team went on to establish HR software CharlieHR, to help provide other small businesses with more time to bring their ideas to life. Backed by several million pounds in venture capital funding, they believe, passionately, that the small companies of today will solve the big problems of tomorrow.

CharlieHR’s recent milestones have included:

  • £1 million raised seed round closed at the beginning of 2016
  • Consistent 40 per cent month-on-month growth since Jan 2016
  • Over 2500 companies now on the platform in over 20 countries
Join Keystone and Rob, on the morning of 18 May, as he shares his experiences and provides insight into the advantages of external funding. Attendees will also gain an understanding of the topic from an investor’s perspective, hearing from Kingston Smith’s investment expert Jonathan Garbett.
