UKBAA Winter Investment Dinner 2017

The annual UKBAA Winter Investment Dinner returns on 22nd February 2017, this year hosted high above the heart of the City of London on the 42nd floor of The Leadenhall Building (The Cheesegrater).

Join us to make connections and interact with leaders in the angel and early-stage finance community over a sumptuous three-course dinner with carefully-paired wines. Enjoy panoramic views of the Thames, the City skyline and many of London’s major landmarks through Landing Forty Two’s triple aspect floor-to-ceiling windows. And steel yourself for the fastest scenic lifts in Europe!

Guest speaker

We have lined up an outstanding speaker for the occasion: David J. Brown, co-founder and CEO of Ve Interactive. Under David’s leadership, Ve Interactive has been listed as one of Europe’s unicorns and named the fastest-growing tech company in the UK by The Sunday Times’ Tech Track 100. By 2015, it had achieved three consecutive years of over 300% growth; and the company has recently enjoyed coverage following a £50m round of acquisitions. David studied composition and piano and still considers himself first and foremost a composer and pianist.

Who attends

The UKBAA Winter Investment Dinner welcomes a range of guests from the angel and early-stage finance ecosystem, including private investors, angel groups and syndicates, fund managers, crowdfunders, disruptive entrepreneurs and established thought leaders. At last winter’s dinner, we were delighted to welcome some of the most inspiring and pioneering leaders in the industry.
