#FPLive - A journey to America and back

We’re gathering together a select group of startup entrepreneurs, their colleagues as well as key influencers from the London tech community for our next “Forward Partners Live” event.

As always the evening will be a mix of thought provoking discussion with our invited speaker, networking and drinks.

Skimlinks: Lessons learnt from a journey to America and back

Alicia Navarro is CEO & Co-Founder of Skimlinks, the worlds leading content monetization service for online publishers. She started Skimlinks in 2008 after a pivot from a previous business, turning the company into a platform for automating and optimizing affiliate linking within content. She then took the business to the US where she was based for over 2 years, before returning to the London headquarters to continue Skimlinks' international growth from there. Skimlinks now employs over 80 people in London, San Francisco and New York; has raised $24M in equity funding, and drives $625m in annual ecommerce sales.

Join us to hear from Alicia on:

  • The search for a business model
  • The tips and tricks of raising money in the UK and the US
  • Expanding into the US - tips on moving yourself and my business
  • The things that get harder and easier as you grow rapidly

Remember - we’re always on the lookout for great entrepreneurs to back. If you know anyone that we can help to find a co-founder and start a business, please get in touch.
