Event Details

Join us for a fireside chat and networking with two local founders who’ve done what we’ve all considered (even dreamt off) – to stop selling our limited time and start building and selling products to sell multiple times!

Laura Elizabeth from Hinckley used to be a freelance graphic designer but happened to stumble upon demand for her small side project. It turned into Client Portal, a client-friendly way to keep freelance projects organised. She also runs Design Academy, a course which helps developers conquer their fear of design.

Ben Ravilious ran a web development agency for years until he got tired of late payments and constantly chasing clients. So he pivoted his company Ultimate Web, which today builds its own apps and other software, whilst collaborating with others for equity.

In order for you to get the most out of this event, we’ll also be organising a speed date/round table session where you can get practical advice and 1-to-1 help for your own needs.

Finally, what’s a networking event without free coffee and food?! We’ll serve up some refreshments to get those transformer brains ticking!

We are delighted to be partnering on this event with Creative Coffee, LCB Depot, Create Growth fund and we’re always very grateful to our sponsors the Sir Thomas White Loan Charity!
