Want to know how startup entrepreneurs think? How do they overcome the challenges of starting a business? And what keeps them awake at night? TechSPARK is hosting an Entrepreneurs Club as part of Venturefest (Tuesday 9th June) in Bristol, which will take the form of two Q&A panels with eight entrepreneurs from the Bristol and Bath region.

The Q&A sessions will last 45 mins each and they will be in The Junction (the amphitheatre in the Engine Shed) – there is seating for only around 40 people, so if you are keen, make sure you get there early.

The main objective of the sessions is to find out how entrepreneurs deal with the many challenges they face when building a business. I will have a few questions prepped, but I will also be taking questions from the audience and via Twitter (using @TechSPARKuk).

We have four great entrepreneurs for each session:

Session 1: 9.45am – 10.30am

Kirsty Ranger, Ideasquares

Session 2: 3.30pm – 4.15pm

  • Ben Heald (Sift)
  • Jaya Chakrabarti (Nameless)
  • Paul Archer (Duel)
  • Tom Savage (People Graph)

If you haven’t yet registered for Venturefest, you are leaving it late! But you can do it here. There are over 1,300 people registered so far, so do it now.

And, if you want to suggest questions or themes you want me to cover, just send them to @TechSPARKuk or @DigitalDMR.
