TableCrowd's dinner with Peter Dowds

Date: 15-May-17 to 15-May-17
Location: Aubaine Mayfair / London / United Kingdom
Category: Education

Enjoy dinner, drinks and a chance to meet…
Peter Dowds, ex co-founder of Mopp, an online UK service which helped homeowners find cleaners. Founded at the end of 2012, the business scaled to 60,000 customers, and from $0 to $8m turnover in just 19 months. Six months later, Peter and his fellow co-founder, decided to sell the company to US competitor - Handy, and a successful acquisition and exit then followed. Peter swiftly moved onto his next business, armed with the learning (and same co-founder!) from the first and is now focussed on Elder, a platform that provides better access to the right live-in care.

This dinner is perfect for…
Business owners, CEOs & management level.

The dinner conversation will be…
Peter has hands on experience of leaving his city job to start a tech business, bootstrapping, raising capital, scaling and scaling fast and then negotiating a company buyout and exit - and all within the space of a couple of years! He will be speaking about:
✓ The story with Mopp – how they did it!
✓ Getting to an exit and why having an exit strategy is key.
✓ The post acquisition period – what happened next and how it felt!
✓ Applying the learnings to his new business – what he will do (and won’t do!) this time around.
Peter is one of TableCrowd’s earliest (and favourtite!) members and has a wealth of experience to share. You’ll leave with a honest insight into his experience and with plenty of practical advice to apply to your own business.

Who is Peter Dowds?
Peter Dowds is now the co-founder of Elder, a homecare marketplace matching customers with professional carers. Peter started out as a corporate lawyer in the City but left that behind to co-found Mopp - a technology led start-up bringing domestic cleaning into the 21st Century.
