This month Startup Grind hosted Nick Bell the founder of Web Marketing Experts. Nick spoke about his journey in creating and eventually selling his business, as well as previous ventures. Having a strong sales approach seems to have been one of the primary reasons for the success of his business. Nick spoke openly and honestly during the discussion and answered some tricky questions that the audience posed to him.
The event provided networking opportunities prior to hearing Nick speak as well as after, there were also roving canapes and drinks on offer. Most attendees were at early stages of their start up journey, with some business owners being at the pre-startup phase. If you are looking for networking opportunities at Startup Grind make sure that you take a pen and paper with you to jot down people’s details or get them to connect with you via LinkedIn on the spot as hardly anyone brings business cards.
