M14 Industries Confirmed As GDI London Conference & Spotlight On Startups Sponsors

m14 industries

We are very pleased to announce that M14 Industries has been confirmed as the latest sponsor for this year’s GDI London Conference & Spotlight on Startups competition.

Having been a sponsor & speaker at last year’s GDI Amsterdam Conference, M14 Industries CEO John Kershaw has now announced the company will be sponsoring this year’s London conference and evening startup event.

Held at five star hotel The Grange in St Paul’s from 10am until 4pm, this year’s GDI London conference is set to be the best yet, with industry-leading speakers, panel debates and networking throughout the day. 

Following this event, we are very excited to host our brand new startup competition, Spotlight on Startups.

Held at The Singer Tavern near Old Street from 7pm until 11pm, the evening event will see the hottest dating startups pitch against each other and get grilled by attendees and experts, before the winners are picked by an audience vote. 

M14 was built off the back of the success of CEO John Kershaw’s dating platform Bristlr, a dating site for beard lovers that was one of 2015’s surprise niche hits, seeing worldwide growth after being featured on The Washington Post, BBC, Newsweek and The Telegraph.

Following the success of Bristlr, Kershaw and his team tailored the platform the app was created on, building one of the industry’s most exciting new ventures — M14.

M14 is a fully customisable white label dating platform for apps, providing clients with the full technology and base to build a secure, scalable, pre-populated & feature rich mobile dating product.

After publishing an in-depth interview with the founder earlier this year, we are also very pleased to announce that Kershaw will feature in an upcoming episode of our GDI Meets series, so keep an eye on the site for the full interview coming very soon.
