Startup Grind Bournemouth

July 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

£15

In July we’re excited to be joined for a fireside chat by Nuno Almeida, an entrepreneur and innovation enthusiast. He will talk about launching and growing his award winning health-tech startup, Nourish Care. We’ll be looking at the journey Nuno has been on with Nourish, how they went about raising significant investment and why Bournemouth was the right place to headquarter. As one of the founding members of the Dorset Business Angels and Silicon South, Nuno will also talk to us about why he feels the region is a magnet for entrepreneurs and founders and how startups should go about accessing the right kind of mentoring, funding and expertise. Nuno will share Nourish’s growth journey and challenges the company faced along the way.

In this fireside chat, Andrew will be talking to Nuno about:

Building the proposition and choosing friends and enemies

Routes to funding

The importance of accessing mentorship

Why Bournemouth is a great place for digital innovators

The power of collaborative startup ecosystems
