The Cambridge Start-up Billion Pound Scale-up Challenge

Brought to you by The Bradfield Centre

How can Cambridge Start-ups Grow to Billions, not Millions? Would you like to hear the story of the former CTO at HP Autonomy and why he's on a mission in Cambridge? Or perhaps the story of the fastest growing tech start-up in Cambridge could give you some insights?

About the event

How do we get even more Cambridge Scale-ups Grow to Billions?

We're giving 3 Cambridge scale-ups the chance to pitch in 3 min a business challenge and get advice from a panel of top executives such as:

Only 3 scale-ups will have the chance to pitch their challenge* (max 3min) to the panel and get answers from the panel on 3 actions you could take to help them grow.

*Only Cambridge startups that have secured a min of £350,000 investment (or client income), are growing, or may have even reached millions of pounds turnover but have challenges as a result of growth.

Event will be chaired by Adelina Chalmers, a.k.a. The Geek Whisperer.

Growth challenges could be:

  • Wondering how big you can be and if you should sell up to that corporate offering to buy you out
  • Wondering if you should go for series B or C of investment (raise money to grow faster but end up owning less of your company; or bootstrap for longer, owning more but perhpas growing slower)
  • Feeling unsure about how to build and lead your teams through significant business change, as they are spread across continents (hiring people who can scale, hiring people who are unlike you (e.g. salespeople for tech founders and visa versa), hiring abroad in different cultures, etc.)
  • Launching in new markets (if it requires investment and time, how do you open up offices in other places, like the US)
  • Experiencing other growing pains that you'd like advice on.
