Speakers: Anton Gu, Nana Wereko-Brobby
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.
