About our Speakers:

The two alumni of The University first met in halls and quickly established a friendship, and later business partnership, that would prove highly successful.

MOPP is an online platform enabling users to find professional cleaner services (think of it as Uber with dusters) which was sold in 2014 to US firm Handy in a multi-million pound deal. In 2015 they started a new venture, Elder, which aims to link carers and care-giving professionals with those who need it. Peter and Tom have raised £7 million for Elder from one of the leading Venture Capital funds in Europe.


Reserve your place by booking online, limited spaces available.
