Media Entrepreneur Meetup Community expands to B2C specialist and passion-led media owners

The Media Entrepreneur Meetup, a global group of 400+ Founders and CEOs of independent events, media and subscriptions companies, has created a new Chapter for specialist and passion-led B2C publishers.

It will be hosted by Andrea Davies, B2C Practice Lead with Collingwood Advisory and former Group Managing Director with TI Media.

The first B2C Media Entrepreneur Meetup will take place on 15th June 2022, 17.30-19.30 in central London (venue to be confirmed), with special guests including Oswin Grady, Publishing Director at Kelsey Media; Mike Seaman, Founder and CEO at Raccoon Events; and Nicole Cooper, Managing Director at Touchpoint Live Media.

Piers Bearne, Co-host of the Media Entrepreneur Meetup, says, “We began hosting the Media Entrepreneur Meetup because, having launched, built and sold businesses ourselves, we saw how important it was for entrepreneurs to share ideas, support each other and network in person and virtually.”

It’s been fantastic to see the community grow to over 400 members who have the opportunity to regularly meet and connect with their fellow Founders to discuss the issues that are most important to them. Particularly during the pandemic, we saw how supportive and valuable this community is.

Andrea Davies adds, “It’s such an exciting time for specialist media with new technologies and formats opening up a mix of revenue opportunities. These business owners are united by their drive to connect their audience with their passion. We are definitely seeing a shift from the single business model to a more diverse playbook and with that, convergence across specialist media as business owners look to deepen their engagement with their audience and provide more meaningful interactions for commercial partners.”

The Meetup will provide an opportunity for CEOs and Founders to discuss issues and share strategic insight as they navigate a rapidly changing landscape of new technologies, data and content analytics practices.
