This year, Stora's offering free Startup and Automation Clinics slots with our experts Mark and Gavin. A friendly, informal opportunity for you to chat one-on-one with someone who knows the industry inside-out.

What you'll learn

It's up to you! Each session is 15-minutes long and is your chance to get free input on the research, planning, or operational challenges you've run into since going live. Ask them anything, including your questions about:

  • choosing locations;
  • fit out strategies;
  • ways to reduce your workload with automation;
  • pricing, discounts, and promotions;
  • handling customer access;
  • pricing advice;
  • tech that startups need to know about, and more.

But book your spot fast, before they run out!


Sessions are available Wednesday 28 and Thurs 29 September from 8am-close each day at the Stora booth inside the conference's exhibitor area.
