Is anyone else attending the Coop Congress, 23rd June, London? https://www.uk.coop/congress
Would be nice to meet up with anyone else attending.
Incidentally, they offered me a heavily discounted ticket price for attending a workshop earlier in the year.
And by way of a new member self-introduction:
I’ve worked in start-ups most of my career, some successful, some not - but a common factor was the disappointing behaviour once the smell of money was in the air. Many of those that made money had a tenuous relationship with making a substantial contribution - and many of those that had contributed massively saw little or no reward.
I want to do it differently.
I’ve finally taken the plunge, used my own start-up capital to develop prototype - but I’m keen to find an alternative to the angel-investor/venture-capital route.
My background is very much electronics hardware and embedded systems. I’m not quite ready to whip the covers off my project, but it’s B2B aimed at the live entertainment sector.
