I know. One day only. That’s what we said. After all, we’d never run anything like this before. Who knew how it was going to turn out? We’d gone around telling everyone it was going to be the MOST AMAZING THING HAPPENING AT MADE FESTIVAL and we figured that any event combining entrepreneurs, ale, and the most excellent surroundings of The Great Gatsby would be a roaring success. But we didn’t know for sure. How could we? So, one day only. That’s what we decided. After all, we didn’t want to risk clashing with the busy MADE schedule and awesome speaker line-up today.
So, why am I back here? Sitting again with the office MacBook working on my post-entrepreneurs-pub-post in the Entrepreneurs’ Pub?
Well, partly because the mochas are really good and I like the smell of Mexican food. But mostly, because we were asked very nicely, but repeatedly last night by MADE Festival organisers to please keep the pub open for one more day. And ever so strong is our need to please, we kindly acquiesced to the request. Hence, the Entrepreneurs’ Pub: Day 2.
If you weren’t able to make it yesterday, you missed out. Not gonna lie. It was pretty awesome. Luckily for you, we’re working on getting a video made so you can experience the day through the medium of YouTube. Watch this space.
But if you’re around today, come down and check us out. You can’t miss us. The signage is pretty cool. We don’t have any events or meetings planned. We’re a little bit more laid back today, becoming simply the lounge and hangout for the MADE Festival delegates. The Entrepreneurs’ Ale is still on draft at £2.50 a pint until the last 100 pints are gone.
We’ll have more news and photos from Entrepreneurs’ Pub: Day 1 up on this blog as soon as we’ve all recovered from the free Pitch Club cocktails. Until then, if you’re at MADE Festival, enjoy the rest of the conference, let us know about any awesome fringe events you go to, and let the creativity flow!
