Intertech @ Pride in London - We need you!

The Pride in London Parade is held annually to celebrate progress made in the LGBT+ community towards equality and remind us of the of the ongoing LGBT+ issues not just in London but all over the world.

This year, Intertech will once again be joining in the festivities with a "SHEDLOAD"(technical term) of events from our sponsors, on the day activities and more Intertech members marching than before.

Intertech Pride 2018 promises to be the bigger and better than ever before!

Over the coming months, we will be sharing more details, however for now we need some key support from the Intertech community to help make this happen. This will include low key activities (i.e. attending weekly calls, taking a few actions) and potentially on the day tasks to help the day run smoothly. We respect the time and capacity of our volunteers so we'll guarantee you a marching ticket to say thank you.

If you are interested in helping out over the coming months, please drop jerr2y.chen@gmail.com or rfarthing@outlook.com an email and we will take it from there!

Intertech @ Midrive - How to build a multi-million pound marketplace

Join us for an evening of conversation, questions and insight with Midrive and Crowdcube considering how both businesses have scaled from small tech start-ups to successful multi-million pound marketplaces.

We'll be hearing from Asher Ismail, Midrive CEO (and Intertech royalty, having co-founded Intertech in 2012).

In the last 12 months, sales of Midrive’s ‘smarter lessons’ and ‘pay as you go’ insurance have increased 391%. Asher will be sharing his top lessons for scaling a marketplace business (and the necessary technology), with examples from Uber, eBay, and AirBnb, as well as some mistakes he's made along the way as an entrepreneur.

We'll also be joined by Darren Mulvihill of Crowdcube who will share the challenges they have overcome in creating the UK’s largest crowdfunding marketplace.

In typical Intertech fashion, drinks and canapés will be provided and we'll continue the evening, and conversation, in a nearby venue afterwards.

See you there,

Intertech Team
