Scale up Stories with the Investment Activator Progamme

February 18, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

How do you build a business that successfully scales? Whether it’s hiring people, raising money, building collaborative cultures or keeping agility there’s a myriad of challenges. Our friends at Sanderson have built a panel of people who have been through it all and are here to share their journey.

Join TechSPARK to find out how to get it right, what rabbit holes to avoid and the potholes to dodge.
