Young Directors Forum ‘Den’ 2019

David Stringer-Lamarre, MD of FortisCL and Chairman of the Institute of Directors, London Region was pleased to attend this event ran by the Institute of Directors (IoD), Central London Branch, Young Directors Forum.

For the fourth year running the IoD Young Directors Forum hosted their highly acclaimed YDF Den. This Dragons Den style event gave four carefully selected entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch to a panel of expert investors in front of a room filled with 150 + business leaders and investors. Previous years have led to multiple investments, either directly with one of our panel, an investor in the audience or via an introduction made as a direct result of the pitch.

The four companies were: Suprafin, Down Your High Street, Stotles and Kar-Go. The winning company, as chosen by the audience was Stotles.
