April Seed Run

And there was I thinking we did not need an office. Nobody told me you could have two beer taps serving Neck Oil and Moretti. Time to update those numbers in the business plan.

Thank you Stride.VC for hosting us last night. What a truly stunning venue. More boutique hotel than corporate office. And with beer taps. Very generous of you, everyone had the best time.

Another thank you to all of you. We raised £1,000 for the $1KProject. The money will go directly to a family in Ukraine affected by the war, and will have an immediate tangible impact on their life.

I had planned to play a personal video that Alex Iskold recorded for us. He is the founder of the $1KProject and also 2048 Ventures in NYC. Do listen to the video, at 2mins 47 he says that if any runners want to connect to either get feedback or if you're fundraising, you can get his details from me.


We had more women running than ever before. It would be great to have 50% representation, so please tell your friends and let them how much fun it is! Julia came in in front, closely followed by Rebecca and Georgia. I will be sending a Seed Run running top to Julia in the post.

The men’s race was tight as always. In the newly introduced over 50s section, I narrowly beat Fred to the line ;). Overall, Michael came in first, closely followed by Ben, who will be receiving a running top as Michael already has one!

Thank you all for making the effort to get out and run 5k. It was great to raise so much money for the $1kProject. I have listed everyone we managed to register below, let me know if we missed you and I will add you.

The next Seed Run will be in early June. Look out for the email. Looking forward to seeing you all then.
