  • Once more into the breach...

    "Got, got, got... need." The Second Chance Tuesday event, held at The Century Club on Shaftesbury Avenue, resurrected a networking staple of yesteryear with attendees choosing a coloured sticker to denote what their role in the whole bash is. Entrepreneurs were encouraged to wear a green sticker while the investors, of whom there were plenty present wore red. Casual bystanders or those not looking to be so clearly labelled – such as press – wore amber to denote their neither-nor status.

    The idea behind the system is that the two interested parties, like couples on a speed date would be able to find each other. Green stickers could speak to red stickers with a view to striking deals that will inject fresh vigour into the UK dot-com sector.

  • Fancy seeing Tew here: Alex Tew, creator of the Million Dollar Homepage, now set on dot-com domination, said: "I think this event will be incredibly valuable. There are people here who will be useful for getting investment but also it is important that I can meet people in the same situation and the same industry."

    However, he confessed he had a slight 'impostor complex', following the overnight success of his web phenomenon. "I feel like I shouldn't really be here," he admitted.
