Secret Leaders: Funding and Financing Startups

Monday, 20 May 2019 -

​La Fosse Associates are delighted to partner with Secret Leaders for their season 3 live events.

Secret Leaders returned with a bang from Jo Malone OBE - Perfumier Extraordinaire & Founder of Jo Loves, and Justine Roberts - Network and Community Expert and Founder of Mumsnet.

For the 3rd of the season 3 live event, they are hosting their next event the day to discuss all things funding and finance from a variety of perspectives from some of the most respected leaders in the UK today. Funding and Financing Startups is incredibly complicated, time consuming and distracting - but for most founders, it's an essential skill to learn and comes in all shapes and sizes. 

Hosted by Dan Murray and Produced by Rich Martell - Secret Leaders bring out the untold stories from the best and biggest names in leadership to educate, delight and inspire. With over 1 million downloads - Secret Leaders is your go-to Podcast to learn from the best.
