September 29th: Like Minds, Exeter “From Startup to Scaleup”


Like Minds Returns to Devon at Exeter Castle.

We’re really looking forward to returning to our home city after taking Like Minds to Bristol, London and New York last year. This year the topic is “From Startup to Scaleup” aimed at businesses that are looking to scale fast and build a sustainable business and brand in these challenging times.

Come and join over 300 entrepreneurs and fast growth businesses from across the region and beyond. There will be a wide range of keynotes, panel debates, workshops and insights shared across the day.

Like Minds is an intellectual playground where thinkers, strategists, agents provocateurs, innovators, challengers and mavericks can open up, share ideas and be inspired in a warm, welcoming and world-wide environment. If you haven’t been, go. You’ll see the future there; most likely, yours.
