Hulah is a mobile app that uses travel technology combined with expert knowledge to find and book perfect trips for you (“online, on-demand and the lowest price is always guaranteed”).

Thornton Heath resident Fifi Kara and her co-founder Jamie will be discussing how they initially came up with the idea and the step they’ve taken to getting it off the ground and into a revenue-generating startup. The Hulah team have recently been through the world-renowned Ignite Accelerator and will be discussing their experiences and what they’ve learnt as they pursue their startup dreams!

Stuart Millson, co-founder of BrokerCompare

BrokerCompare is a newly-launched broker comparison site started by Sussex Innovation Centre resident Stuart Millson that aspires to save investors thousands of pounds.

The average investor will lose £141 a year compared to using the cheapest service. Over a 20-year investment period this adds up to a startling £5,300 in excessive charges and lost investment growth on that money, while investors with larger portfolios may lose much more.

Thanks to BrokerCompare, users can search and find the most cost-effective investor or investment fund. Users can personalise their search according to how much they hold, how often they trade, and how long they plan to hold the account.

Aws Ismail, co-founder of PEEK

The app that makes job-hunting relevant to the Tinder generation

Tired of the traditional way of searching for a job? A simple swipe and bid can secure you your next part-time job, weekend job, or your next career move.

Aws Ismail and his two co-founders, Zaid Papier and Saif Shariefi, are taking recruitment and job hunting into the modern Age with their mobile app, PEEK. PEEK takes the left-swipe, right-swipe mechanics of popular dating app Tinder and applies it to the world of jobhunting.

If you’ve ever been frustrated with finding your next job, this talk will be for you.
