We are super excited to invite you to our next IoD 99 social. The event is aimed at Founders/ Co-Founders, it is free to attend and is set to be very relaxed and informal, just think beer, bites and micro pitches...

We want the event to be all about you, so we are incorporating the chance for you to give short pitches about you/ your startup to everyone and to put an ask out to the audience to support you.

The event is free to attend, but places are very limited, we expect there to be alot of interest, so please book on asap. If you are an IoD 99 member just register using the relevant option. If you are not an IoD 99 member please use the guest option.
