Zinc Mission 2: Show & Tell

17th, 5:00-6:30pm (LocalGlobe LLP, Phoenix Court, 2 Brill Pl, Somers Town, London NW1 1DX)

An opportunity to meet the 15 companies in our Mission 2 Portfolio, which represent a very diverse group of Founders. Most Show and Tell's begin at 1:30pm and run until 3pm (other than the one on the 17th July).

These events are a great opportunity to hear from our mission-led businesses that are in the very early stages of their journey as they share their vision and progress to date, along with clear asks for help in their 3 minute pitches. A networking session will follow the pitches, where you can learn more about the Zinc businesses and explore how you can get involved.


More Details

On October 1st 2018, 50 Entrepreneurs (Founders) from all around the world joined Zinc second mission in order to develop new products and build new scalable businesses that will unlock opportunities in areas hard hit by globalisation and automation.

Since then, the Founders on the programme, supported by more than 100 experts (Fellows) and 25 executive coaches, have developed and tested an incredibly diverse range of products and services that spread across various sectors such as transportation, maternal mental health, ed-tech, social mobility and mentoring, the care industry, and more.

From April to July 2019, Zinc will be hosting “The Show & Tell sessions”, a series of fortnightly events which provide an opportunity to learn about the very early stage Mission 2 Portfolio companies: learn more about the team, the vision, the products and traction.

It’s an exciting time to get involved with the companies to see how you can support them to achieve their ambitious visions by providing advice, making useful connections, offering skills, and exploring investment opportunities.


How can I get involved?

We are looking to bring together people who are interested in getting involved with Mission 2 ventures through one or more of the following:

1) Investor/Investment Advice. Are you looking to invest and support the mission-led companies via capital and other resources, such as work-space?

2) Becoming an Advisor / Mentor. Are you an expert in a particular domain (e.g. entrepreneurship, investment, research, clinical practice, etc.) interested in advising or mentoring the Founders and their companies?

3) Joining a Business. Are you interested in joining an early-stage, mission-driven start-up?

4) Working with the Teams. Are you interested in working with an early-stage, mission-led start-up to gain experience through project-based work, an internship, or a student placement?

Please join us at our Zinc Show & Tell to meet Mission 2 companies and help us tackle this important mission!
