Tuesday 2nd May saw Jeff Lynn, CEO of Seedrs join us for Forward Partners Live which took place at LSE's Saw Swee Hock Centre in Holborn, somewhat of a departure from Silicon Roundabout.

We were honoured to host Jeff as he talked us through the incredible Seedrs journey to date as well as his experiences of building a truly disruptive business. Jeff also talked us through the history and wider context of the democratisation of investment from the earliest days of the Bank of Italy in earthquake devastated San Francisco to the emergence of Merrill Lynch in the 1940s.

Following his talk, a lengthy Q&A session ensued in which Jeff answered queries which ranged from what he thought would be the next disruption in investment (the million dollar question) to the intricacies of Seedrs approach to due diligence. 

A great night was had by all and once the talk concluded our 200 guests set about networking over drinks and nibbles.
