Local businessman Ben Towers is sure to inspire new entrepreneurs in his special session at next month’s Kent 2020 Vision Start-Up LIVE at the Kent Event Centre.
As one of the UK’s most successful young businessmen, Ben Towers started his first company, Towers Design, aged 11 and is already living proof that the Internet has swept away many of the obstacles that previously deterred would-be entrepreneurs – especially young people without any significant capital behind them.
By dramatically reducing the time and cost of getting new ventures off the ground, the web has created a new wave of start-ups that are not afraid to challenge established market-leaders by doing things differently and leveraging digital channels. With Towers Design now going strong and new venture Social Marley currently at funding stage, Ben’s story illustrates perfectly how self-belief is now one of the only obstacles for anyone with an innovative business idea that wants to make it a reality.
Kent 2020 Vision Start-Up LIVE is a unique event for new business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs and anyone looking to start their own venture in the South East.
Other highlights of the programme for 20th October include:
• Mark Palmer from Pret a Manger and Green & Black’s on building a business with personality
• Tom Christie-Miller from the IoD and Disney on big marketing strategies for small businesses
• Katie King from Zoodikers on the business impact of new AI technologies
• Entrepreneurs Circle on the secrets of rapid growth
• Social media commentator Zoe Cairns on generating sales through your existing network
