9 years of 9others
And on to 2021
9 years of 9others
Nine years after nine others came together on 8th Dec 2011, 9others turned nine.
In a most unusual year we are reflective about the challenges we’ve all faced in 2020 and grateful to have been able to move the meals online (and a couple of Coffee Mornings in rural Hertfordshire). We were still able to connect good people and help each other solve the challenges that have kept us up at night. And a silver lining of 2020 was that people joined us from across Asia, Europe and USA.
To all of you who have helped us get this far — the hosts around the world and everyone who has joined a meal with 9others — thank you!
Coming in 2021…
‘9others at 9’ Report
During Lockdown we interviewed 27 amazing entrepreneurs from around the world to hear their views on leadership, community and the meaning behind their work. We will publish our findings in early 2021.
We have had a Google doc entitled “The Book” since 2012. Now we’re properly writing it. After hosting hundreds of meals with thousands of entrepreneurs in dozens of cities around the world we want to share what we’ve learned and some lessons that might help you too.
In-person meals with 9others
Get in touch
As ever, we’re here for you. Over the last nine years we’ve met some exceptional entrepreneurs and helped in the success of some remarkable startups. Along side this we’ve helped corporates, governments and investors connect with, partner with and invest in the startups shaping the future.
If there’s something keeping you up at night then remember one of the lines that inspired us to start meals with 9others nine years ago:
“I have always regarded entertaining as a vital and underrated part of business – especially when times are tough. After all, forging and building relationships is really what business is all about. And there’s no better way to take a relationship to the next level than a good meal in the right setting."
We wish you all the best for the rest of 2020 and we hope to see you at a meal with 9others in 2021…
