What Others Are Saying
It was a great pleasure to meet you at the Business show on Thursday and was very regretful you took the time to speak with us. We enjoyed your presentation very much and would like to be considered as a company you help to archive great things.
I had the pleasure of working with Karen in 2019 as a Key Note Speaker and Judge for our Africa Start Up Gate Summit 2019. Karen has continued to support our Tunisian Eco system and that of the MENA countries and her experience that she shared with the delegates at the Summit was and it to this day far reaching to inspire and educate Entrepreneurs in this region. I also know that Karen continued her networking with Inviting some of our Delegates to London to her Family Office Events and some of our Entrepreneurs attended her Accelerator Program. Looking forward to working further with Karen for the future of not only Tunisia as we grow but also the MENA area.
Karen has always made an incredible job when it is organising start-up/investors summit. I have great pleasure working with her, and she understands very well what are the needs from an investor perspective required to succeed, and what start-ups need to show to investors. She is enthusiastic and always full of energy. Passionate about her job, and her will to make companies she is working with to be successful. I only can recommend working with her, and I am pleased to have met her and been working with her.
I was honoured to a speaker of one of Karen’s ESG Spring Investor event. I’ve known Karen for years and she is amazing to work with in the Family Offices. She is a trusted investor, friend and partner to co invest with.
I had the honour of knowing Karen for couple of years now, she is one of the most energetic dedicated and passionate fund raisers I have ever met. Through her family office events in Mayfair London, I came to discover a gem in the family offices business, she would always make sure you are in the right place to connect with suitable leads. Karen is real asset for any startup wanting to raise considerable funds, the key which will open many doors for founders. A. Saed Alzein | LinkedIn
The Christmas investor event organised by Karen and the Gateaway2 Enterprise team was high level, with both great investment propositions from exciting startups with real traction and true investors. All pitches were very tight, well presented and convincing, the party that followed was also very friendly and people were open minded. There was as well a very useful follow up day where investors could meet in one place all the startups that had presented at the event
Hi Karen, Thank you for your help and support in raising capital for our startup – Travaxy accessible travel solutions. Even though we are still in the current round, thank you for sharing your network with us, believing in our cause, and helping us get there! Happy New Year, dear friend
Karen is one of our business partners. She was a speaker in our conferences in Zurich and London. Speakers are welcome to invite up to three VIPs to join our conferences. We were always surprised by the amazing guests she brought along. She has a unique way of collaboration and is an intelligent, generous and authentic business partner. We are honoured to be able to collaborate with her.
I can’t stress enough how great a mentor Karen has been on my journey into business. Her knowledge of all things to do with business planning and finance is fantastic and no matter what the problem, Karen always seems to have the solution. Along with having an extensive business knowledge Karen is also a great person with so much infectious energy, she is a joy to work with.
It was a brilliant event and the accelerator is great – one of the best industry events.
Karen’s recent interview at Expanse Summit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFyP4WnNdQM was insightful and refreshing. There is little information about how to engage with UHNWI and Family Office investors, yet they require a bespoke engagement approach – this short video is a great introduction and highlights the incredible opportunities in this space for both investors and entrepreneurs alike.
I have been trying to raise seed funding for about 2 & 1/2 months. At times it has been really difficult but people like Karen make it all worth it because they understand the struggle. She helped guide me when she didn’t have to and asked for nothing in return. Her feedback and guidance have been invaluable and I cannot thank her enough. A great businesswoman and an even greater human being. Thank you!
I enjoyed your event – you assembled some interesting companies, kept the pitching tight, fielded a top of the line panel, and led us out with a song – what’s not to like!
Karen is a big personality with lots to offer and extremely approachable. If you are looking to take your startup/Business to the next level, then she has vast knowledge and a large network of investor that respect her on a professional and personal level. We met and networked with some amazing mentors on the day of the Gateway2Enterprise accelerator program in Oct 2020, that have made a huge impact on our way of thinking and have allowed to take our vision above and beyond. We’d like to especially thank, Matt Black, Cedric Torrosian, Roshni Durve and all the other mentors that shared their time with us. Thank you and Best wishes.
I first met Karen through a network of Women in Tech in London and then as a client of PwC which then developed into the Scale Program London Manchester Karen then used her wide investor networking skills to source us investment globally and advise re networks and our documents. Though we raised Karen continues to communicate with us and we will be using her skills for 2019 next stage raise Series B
