On 20 September 2018, Russell Copley was invited to attend the first EU Start-Up Festival in Turin.
There, Russell delivered a 90-minute Masterclass on Pitching for Investment – which was well attended and received some fantastic feedback – as well as sitting as part of a panel discussion on raising investment from private individuals.
During the course of the three-day festival, Russell also judged the growth stage entrants for the live pitching competition.
The festival was a sell out with all 1,000 tickets being booked! Most attendees had travelled from Italy, France and Switzerland – with speakers attending from the UK, Austria, France, Spain and Israel.
Russell said that it was “great to share and learn from experiences with other people from other Countries”.
