Anuj Ashar, founder of Beta -Booster is a 21 year old entrepreneur who studied at the University of Leicester, achieving First Class Honours in Aerospace Engineering.

During three years at university Anuj launched three start-ups focusing on Open Banking, FinTech and Artificial Intelligence and was named as one of the "Top 3 Global Young Innovators of 2021" by Innovate UK. This led to receiving numerous 5 figure awards and featuring in news articles across the world. 

Along the journey Anuj found himself often in rooms with people 20 years older than him, and no other young entrepreneurs to grow and share learning experiences with. This is where the inspiration for Beta-Booster came from, and the idea was born.  Beta Booster, is a tech platform designed to support new entrepreneurs and SME’s through artificial intelligence. 

This talk will discuss the challenges and rewards of taking the leap into entrepreneurship as a young founder, and how other early-stage entrepreneurs can launch a business without a lot of initial funds. Many attendees at professional business events are young and aspiring entrepreuneurs with great business ideas. If that sounds just like you, then come along to this event, listen to Anujs' story, experience and key learnings, and meet other like minded individuals.
