Our Next Forward Partners LIVE is on
Wednesday, 31 October


Forward Partners Live: Col Needham, Founder, IMDb

Before Google, before Amazon, before the world wide web, there was IMDb. Its founder, Col Needham, has seen his personal movie database expand from a worldwide volunteer effort to the world’s number one movie site. And during that time, he and his team have learned how to adapt to each major change along the way. Join us this Halloween for Col’s insight and experience from 20 years of starting, growing, selling and managing one of the oldest businesses online. And stick around after the talk to meet the Forward Partners team and a broad cross-section of London’s startup ecosystem.
