Piper hosts its first Seedmeet on hospitality

On 24th September, 20 entrepreneurs from fast-growing hospitality brands attended Piper’s first ever SeedMeet

Piper’s SeedMeet is a bi-annual event that helps smaller growing brands in various consumer sectors better understand the trial and tribulations of getting investment as well as to get an insight into the mind of the investor.

Ajith Jayawickrema, founder of two Piper-backed brands Las Iguanas and Turtle Bay, spoke about his experiences of investment alongside one of our Partners, Peter Kemp-Welch, who held a session on the metrics that investors look for in good hospitality brands. The session also acted as an opportunity for brand-owners in the sector to speak openly (Chatham House rules) about their experiences and perceptions of investment.
