The founder of the UK’s most exciting next unicorn The Dots in Lisbon visit
The Dots founder Pip Jamieson, who is currently one of the UK’s top female entrepreneurs, makes a whistle-stop visit to Lisbon tomorrow (Thursday, 25 October) where she will give a talk about her innovative new business network platform Dots at the co-working space Second Home over Lisbon’s Mercado do Ribeiro “Time Out” market.
Pip Jamieson founded her “no collar” network The Dots in 2014. Dubbed the next LinkedIn, Pip came up with the idea while working on MTV.
“The idea was simple” she says. “LinkedIn appealed to people in traditional jobs that wore suits – I, on the other hand, was surrounded by a workforce of creators, freelancers and entrepreneurs who were choosing a very different way to work. I wanted t connect them together.”
Pip seed-funded the business personally after exiting a previous business she scaled in Australia, developing The Dots from her houseboat in Kings Cross. Two investment rounds, including a recent £4 million round, later she is fast becoming the UK’s most exciting new unicorn company and is now in the top 2.3% of women that receive that scale of funding.
The Dots has simply grown into a viable LinkedIn competitor and is seen as the UK’s next potential unicorn.
