Get dinner with Ben, Head of Level39, Europe’s largest fintech accelerator space — just by volunteering 10 hours to any charity!
This is a London Time Auction experience.
Ben Brabyn, Head of Level39, launched his first digital business in 2001. The world’s first crowdfunding business, Bmycharity combined payments, social networking and data analytics, enabling 800,000 donors to deliver more than £50 million to UK charities. The business was sold to Help for Heroes, the leading charity for British service men and women.
"The Level39 community is a diverse group of innovators. We have 48 nationalities represented here, a real United Nations of innovation here in Canary Wharf."
Shortly afterwards, Ben survived a brain tumour while launching his next digital business, an e-commerce site, and also advised various energy, healthcare and social media businesses on strategy, finance and business development. After this, Ben worked for the UK government as of COO of UK Trade and Investment’s Venture Capital Unit, leading a team of VC and sector specialists. The unit established relationships between global investors and a wide range of UK entrepreneurial businesses.
Ben started his career with five years in the British Armed Forces as a Royal Marine Commando. After leaving the Royal Marines as Captain, Ben joined JP Morgan as an analyst working in New York, London and the Middle East.
Ben is an ambassador for the Royal Navy and Heropreneurs, and joined Level39 as Head in February 2016, supporting 200 high-growth technology companies who are transforming the security, productivity and reach of global financial services and other sectors. Ben has a Master’s degree in Philosophy and Literature from Edinburgh University and an MBA from Warwick Business School.
All volunteer hours must be completed during 1 August 2019 to 15 January 2020.
Cost per person is GBP15 (Full-time students aged 25 or below)/ GBP25 (General Participants) to support the running costs of our charity and our mission to make volunteerism mainstream.
Dinner will be held on 23 January 2020 at 6:45-9pm.
