Join us to hear from Joel Perlman, Co-Founder at OakNorth Bank who will share his expertise in how to overcome the ‘growing pains’ that all expanding businesses face.


This event is invitation only.

All expanding businesses experience ‘growing pains’ which factor towards slowing down development as the business scales.

Designed for businesses at £10m sales or above, this dinner will provide an opportunity to discuss experiences and challenges with your peers and hear how they overcame similar situations. Learn how other founders and CEOs have managed their team and resources to make the changes needed to take their businesses to the next level.

This dinner will look to explore, but will not be limited to:

  • Managing cash flow restraints
  • Optimising growth investment
  • Professionalising processes
  • Preserving company culture
  • Enabling high level strategic thinking

Joel Perlman Co-Founder at OakNorth Bank will be joining us to share his expertise in this area. Joel previously co-founded Copal Amba, an outsourced research company. During his time building Copal Amba, it grew to 3,000 employees across 11 countries before it was acquired in 2014.

In September 2015, Joel launched OakNorth with co-founder Rishi Khosla to provide fast, flexible and accessible debt finance (up to £20m) to entrepreneurs, mid-sized growth businesses and property developers.

In the last two years, the bank has grown its loan book to £450m and been named as one of 17 UK fintech businesses that could one day be worth $1bn.
