This free session will see four distinguished members of the GAIN20 network discuss their business journeys and answer questions from the audience.


  • Will Hayler - CEO of Wavelength Media and Director of the Ticket To Ride Group
  • Melissa Mercer – CEO and Founder of Pixxcell
  • Lucy Cox – Director and Co-Founder of Halto
  • Chris Weavill - Chief Operating Officer and Co-founder of Hertzian

A wealth of collective experience is held by this group of entrepreneurs. GAIN and the BETA Enterprise Programme invite you to hear their stories of how they went from initial business idea to the successful businesses which are running today. 

The panellists are keen to hear your questions about any aspect of starting and running a business from how they financed their ideas, to what worked and didn’t work for them in marketing and sales. What were their greatest challenges, achievements and learning points? Google their businesses, look them up on LinkedIn and come up with some questions in advance.

This free event is open to all Plymouth University undergraduate/postgraduate students and staff. Seating is limited - please register attendance via the above link.
