We love TableCrowd! Imagine being able to dine and learn from entrepreneurs who have ‘made it’ or share a glass of wine with investors who are looking for the next big thing, or simply to network in a relaxed restaurant atmosphere. That’s what TableCrowd offers, a chance to meet people over dinner.
Coming up, you could dine with a leading business journalist: securing press coverage for your business, an Angel Investor, investing in fashion, media & tech or the founder of Pure Gym: launching, scaling and selling, a British business success story. Get dining! Book here
