E2E invites its members to attend one of our #ThinkSeries events with Memery Crystal on 26 February.
We will be joined by one half of the most successful "business brothers" in the UK; Nish Kukadia, Co-founder of SECRETSALES.com, the £47m turnover first flash sales e-tailor to enter the UK market that he started with his brother Sach in 2007.
The Kukadia brothers wanted to offer something different in the online retail industry and give high street labels the chance to still sell out-of-season stock. After 12 years of rapid growth, the business now turns over £47 million and has captivated over 4.5 million members. Nish will be sharing their growth story in a fascinating and interactive talk, aimed to inform and inspire the UK's business leaders.
The event is based around “Growing and funding” your business, and during the evening we will focus on:
Key stages of growth
Types and rounds of funding
Key area of focus as your business grows
The format of the evening will be a welcome drinks reception with canapés followed by a keynote presentation from Karen O’Grady from Memery Crystal who specialises in support for growth companies.
Karen O’Grady works in Memery Crystal’s Corporate team with particular expertise in equity fundraising and private M&A. She regularly advises growth companies and their founders in relation to funding rounds and their eventual exit. Karen has also acted for both angel investors and venture capital funds. Karen has industry experience, having recently spent a year managing a medium-sized waste management company during a period of expansion and structural change.
We will then hear from Nish, who will join a panel discussion with Tom Dupernex - UBS, followed by an interactive Q&A.
