Our second meetup with like minded people, to share stories and see how we can help each other.
We heard an amazing entrepreneur’s story from Mary McCall, who was the founder and managing director of TreatTicket. It had every cornerstone of the challenges that a startup will face if they are successful – meeting with the HMRC head-on, dealing with banks, investors and growth pains. It was a great tale delivered with candour, and with some valuable pointers for our group.
Mary also gave us an insight into her new role at the Northern Ireland Hospice, the work it does and how it connects with the regional business community, and how even the smallest of companies can support the work done at the hospice.
The get together was hosted W5, who along with their hospitality gave us a sneak preview of their new immersive suite. Which was VERY impressive. If you get the chance to go along and take a look, do it. Fantastic.
If you are old, or new, friend of XPinnovates, get in touch and we’ll see you at the next CoffeeClub.
