We hope you can join us at the final Business Growth Hub Lunch for this year, which will take place at Hotel Football in Old Trafford.
The event will feature insights from our speaker Tom New, Co-founder of Formisimo, winners of the Innovation Showcase Competition at Venturefest Manchester 2015. The technology business, based at MediaCity UK, secured a £30,000 package of business support after battling it out with eight of the region’s most innovative businesses during the competition at this year’s Venturefest.
Tom New, Formisimo
After graduating with a degree in Philosophy from the University of Manchester, Tom began a career in recruitment and marketing. While at a prestigious boutique Manchester law firm he spearheaded the launch of a new service area, as well as overseeing the business’s digital marketing, and an interest in the potential of the internet, and online transactions, was born.
In 2011 Tom, along with his business partner Al Mackin, launched Formisimo, a digital firm that uses technology to personalise and enhance the online shopping experience. Clients include Secret Escapes, Arsenal and Lexus, with the business currently working on an innovative product that can predict if a person will complete an online checkout or not.
We hope you can join us for an informative and entertaining event, with excellent networking opportunities over lunch.
