HIGH PROFILE CLUB
Tapoly Launch Party Success
by Rebecca Lee on June 28
Last week we were lucky enough to be chosen to host the launch party for Tapoly; an insurance company for the gig economy, founded by our member Janthana Kaenprakhamroy.
The evening had a fantastic turnout full of startup founders, investors and entrepreneurs sharing their stories, experience and achievements as well as tasting great canapes and drinks. The Brazilian snacks were gone in minutes! It was nice to see so many people supporting Janthana and her team but more interesting to see so many people in one room to learn about insurance!
As always, there was lots of opportunities at the event for guests to mingle with one another and discuss themselves, their careers, their goals and so on. I spoke to two lovely gents who are currently working as investors (one of which now works with Janthana!). It was great to hear their story about how they got to where they are today, the ups and downs they’ve faced and answer some questions they had about HIGH PROFILE CLUB and how I can help them! We discussed the importance of networking for an investor to seek new opportunities and partnerships, something HIGH PROFILE CLUB is great at providing members with.
Yes, it is only right this blog has a whole section dedicated to the Brazilian Canapes devoured that night! Nagyla, a wonderful Brazilian caterer delivered 200 canapes including Paes de queijo, Bolinha de queijo, Coxinhas and Croquete Carne. Basically we all stuffed our faces with balls of cheese and chicken and a side of cheese bread. We will definitely be asking Nagyla to make us some Brazilian Canapes for the next event!
Jessica Dick made an appearance at the event to educate guests even further about getting the insurance that is right for them!
Jessica manages a portfolio of investments of around 25 startups in the field of cleantech, social impact, health tech, edtech, B2B and B2C software. She has worked directly with the startups as an advisor, board observer, and on a project basis – in investment readiness and fundraising, operations, business planning and strategy.
It was a fantastic to have Jessica speak at the Tapoly Launch Party, hearing all about her experiences and advice.
Being a new addition to the HIGH PROFILE CLUB team, it was great for me as the events organiser to see the final product of my work and really get involved with the night. I enjoyed putting some faces to the names that I had been emailing non-stop a week before! For me, as a student learning about Tapoly, it was very interesting as it was not a type of insurance that I have ever heard about before.
We would like to congratulate Janthana and her team on the successful launch of Tapoly! To find out more about Tapoly and see all event pictures, click the link below.
