Founders Thursday



Find out what it's really like to start your own business

Founders Thursdays is a monthly event where City students and alumni can meetup in a relaxed and informal environment and share a drink with startup founders to find out more about the highs, and lows, of life in a new business. Think of it as the MTV Unplugged of business events.

Each month we'll be inviting 2 founders to give a short talk on their personal journey from business idea to real business followed by an informal Q&A session with the audience.

Dattch is the first dating app that has been built exclusively for lesbian, bisexual and bi-curious women. Dattch is firstly a community built product. Where users decide the future of the app - what features are built, who gets to join up and even where launches happen next. If users ask for a feature, Dattch listens and it gets built.
