Building a dream team has many challenges and different stages. Once you have attracted the initial founders and experienced the start-up thrill, what is the next step to growing the numbers in line with your vision and developing a sustainable team culture at the same time? How does the role of the entrepreneur evolve as the need for different roles becomes apparent? Our speakers will discuss how they kept their vision for the team whilst the venture developed and changed and what they learnt as they grew the team.

He also created TweetMeme the world’s first platform delivering curated news based upon social signals, it quickly grew an audience of millions and also spawned the incredibly successful Retweet button which helped kick-start the content sharing economy.

About Ricky:

Ricky Kothari, Co-Founder & CEO of T-Sticks of London, is a health nut who was brought up on camellia sinensis (that’s Chinese tea or Indian Assam to you and me). His background is in management consultancy. This led to him visiting a wide variety of different offices that always had the same problems – no clean tea spoons! This lead to some very tea-stained fingers, with the final straw being when his teabag stained a clean white shirt just before a board meeting, and the T-Sticks concept was born.

He spends any free time he has as a high-intensity spin instructor, preaching about the amazing health benefits of tea and about a new way to have healthy and tasty tea on the go. Passionate and an ‘infusisast’ about teas, well-being business, entrepreneurship and giving back by helping people on their journeys especially in East London where his business is based.

Ricky started from a little office in East London which in 1930s was General store selling teas – Brooke Bond (now PG tips and Lyons Tea), we kept the heritage with a modern twist!
