This month we host the third in our series of ‘Building A Billion Dollar Startup‘ events and the second on which we’ve partnered with Telefonica’s accelerator, Wayra. We have three startups from their current cohort – Lobster, Localisto and Team First – joining us the event to present rapid-fire pitches on their disruptive visions. They will speak after keynote speakers BlaBlaCar and Twilio, which both achieved unicorn status this year. To learn more about the events and startups speaking at it check the preview story in today’s newsletter. Tickets to the event are limited so so get touch with Harry at events@strategyeye.com to secure yours today!
