Thank you for checking out our events page for 2020

Throughout the year we’ll be running a number of investor office hours (with a particular focus on female founders), dinners exclusively for our Fund I & II founders, and our rooftop summer party for the wider ecosystem.

Registrations/invitations will generally be open/sent a month before the event, but feel free to add the date to your calendar now.

Thursday 20th February Three Dots Horizontal

Our first investor office hours of the year builds on the success of our event in November last year.

As before, the Playfair Capital team will be joined by investors from other funds as we welcome up to 40 female founders to Warner Yard.

To finish the event, we’ve invited a female founder from our portfolio to deliver a keynote presentation on their journey so far – part advice, part inspiration.

Female Founder Office Hours (remote edition)

Thursday 4th June Three Dots Horizontal

Our third, remote edition of our collaborative Female Founder Investor Office Hours builds on the success of our events in February 2020 and November last year.

This time, we're going fully remote to broaden access to female founders across the country, supported by Tech Nation and 30 investors from the UK's leading VCs alongside the Playfair Capital team.

The primary aim of this initiative is mentorship & support, and secondary is fundraising. We hope that with time, the two will go hand-in-hand.

We welcome applications from any UK-based female founder whose business is tech and pre-Series A. We will do our best to accommodate as many founders as possible and provide support to all regardless. Applications will close at midnight on Sunday 24th May.

Female Founder Office Hours (remote edition) - Event 2

Wednesday 24th June Three Dots Horizontal

We received so many applications for Female Founder Office Hours that we decided to put on a second event for another 100 female founders, with 30 more VCs joining Playfair Capital and Tech Nation on June 24th.

Across these two events combined there will be:

  • 800 office hour meetings

  • 200 female founders

  • 200 hours of mentorship, support & pitching

  • 60+ VC investors from the UK’s leading funds

Applications are closed for this June edition, and the next Female Founder Office Hours will be held in October with details to be shared in September.
