Join the Oxford Seed Fund in a fireside chat with Matt Pierri, founder and CEO of Sociability

About this Event

Join the Oxford Seed Fund in a fireside chat with Matt Pierri, founder and CEO of Sociability, a London-based startup helping disabled people find accessible places. In this interactive conversation, Matt will walk aspiring entrepreneurs through his experience raising a seed round for his startup Sociability and advise on navigating the rich Oxford entrepreneurial landscape. He will be discussing his own journey, providing founders with advice on raising a seed round, and talking about his experience with the Oxford Seed Fund, both during the investment process and afterwards. The Seed Fund team will also be available to answer any questions about the application process.

If you are exploring a business idea, or have already started one, and are considering seed funding, this session is for you.

He is also an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Schmidt Futures working to empower greater social inclusion for disabled people globally and the co-founder of the Oxford Accessibility Project and Wheels in Motion, an Australian non-profit working to change perceptions of disability.
