WeWork Paddington, London


So you have an incredible business idea – congratulations! But before you plough all of your money, time and effort into it (and trust us, binging on Netflix boxsets will be a thing of the past) – how can you be sure this idea will work? How do you know that your business idea is going work, beyond asking your friends or family if it's a good idea? Join our MeetUp in London for an evening of inspirational speakers who have "been there and done that" to help you find out what you need to do to ensure that your start-up idea has the validation it needs to launch with confidence. Join fellow entrepreneurs, the Virgin StartUp team and some great speakers for an evening of networking and interactive talks, including a Q&A.

More details to come soon!

Speakers: Liha Bueaty

Abi and Liha met at University over 20 years ago. Abi was an athlete competing for Great Britain and Liha was a bit of a slacker but they clicked over their love of natural cosmetics. Their inspiration for setting up LIHA Beauty came from years of making their own product but setting up a skincare line was kind of a happy accident. They had been tinkering away with making their now cult product, Idan oil, for a while as they were obsessed with making a magical oil that could be used for absolutely everything… head to toe! When they finally perfected the oil and started giving it away as gifts to family and friends, they kept getting re-orders by some of our closest friends and that’s how the idea for LIHA Beauty was born!

Liha Beauty will be speaking at the Virgin StartUp MeetUp
