Tech Entrepreneurs Panel & Networking
Tuesday 28 November

 

This event is sponsored by Balderton Capital

Tech entrepreneurs are a fast-growing section of the INSEAD community and there are now plenty of examples of exits from our alumni. It’s been a while since we met up to share perspectives and hear from successful tech entrepreneurs and we’re looking forward to our autumn meeting.

 

Our November event will be moderated by Rob Moffat (MBA 04D), Partner at Balderton Capital, with tech entrepreneur panellists. Join us for a stimulating evening which will give plenty of space to a panel discussion and networking.

Ricky is also Managing Partner at Hexagon Partners, a specialist private equity firm which invests in financial technology.
