The Slurp Group will be showcased along with other promising VC-backed start-ups in a BVCA organised event on 24th May 2011. The event will be chaired by Ed Vaizey MP – the minister within the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills responsible for the start-up and venture sector. It will be attended by up to 200 venture capitalists, investors, politicians, officials from the London Mayor’s office and media personnel.
The Slurp Group was selected for the event in recognition of its progress in bringing innovation and entrepreneurial flair to the staid world of UK wine, beer and spirits retailing. The event is intended to celebrate success stories such as Slurp, and to allow companies to share experiences (both good and bad!) and to inspire others. The event will encompass a formal presentation, Q&A session and a networking session (for which regrettably Slurp is not supplying the refreshments).

CEO Dr Jeremy Howard will make the presentation along with COO Nico Sunnucks.
