This event runs from 12noon to 2.00pm.

They're young, fearless, tech-savvy and determined to change the world. Meet Entrepreneurs 2.0: The Next Generation.

Earlier this year BusinessCloud identified 35 entrepreneurs under the age of 35 who had the courage to create something fantastic with tech.

There was so much talent to choose from we created a separate list of 'ones to watch' and on September 18 a number of the entrepreneurs will be sharing their experiences in their own words.

Is age a barrier when it comes to business? How easy is it to get investment? How important are mentors to young entrepreneurs? How do you scale your business? When's the right time to recruit? and; Is it wrong to think about an exit?

These, and many other questions, will be answered at our special event Entrepreneurs 2.0: The Next Generation.
