An evening with Sherry Coutu: A scale-up special
Sherry Coutu CBE is arguably one of the world’s most influential and best-networked people in technology and investing. Among many prestigious titles, Sherry is a Non-Executive Director of proptech giant Zoopla, London Stock Exchange and The University of Cambridge. She also serves on the Advisory Board of Linkedin.com, which was bought by Microsoft last June for $26.2bn.
After authoring The Scale-up Report, a report urging the government to help ambitious businesses scale to their full potential, she teamed up with LinkedIn Co-founder Reid Hoffman to set up and chair the ScaleUp Institute, an organisation set out to make Britain the number one destination for businesses to grow and scale. If Sherry’s vision is realised, Britain could add 150,000 jobs to the economy and £225bn to its GDP.
Most interestingly for investors, fast-growing scale-ups (like Zoopla or LinkedIn were a few years ago) make for very profitable investment opportunities.
Sherry will talk about the importance of scale-ups in Britain’s economy and how to access them as investment opportunities.
