Paul Mead, founder of VCCP Media spent the week talking to start ups and budding entrepreneurs as a judge and mentor at The Young Entrepreneurs Festival this week.
The event was organised by Tech City and the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising to help inspire and support early stage UK start-ups. The first two days were spent at Hackney House in the bustling Shoreditch ‘Silicon Roundabout’ area of East London and involved an initial group of 80 budding entrepreneurs pitching their ideas to a panel of judges from a range of different industries.
The finalists faced the daunting task of pitching to a panel which included potential investors live on stage at Ad Tech 2012.
