It was summer in the City when I enjoyed a very enlightening evening at the Ariadne summer party in West London. Amidst some very bright, beautiful and entrepreneurial women, the summer soiree brought together many of todays start-up stars as well as their influential investors. Hosted by Julie Meyer, the American doyenne, small business champion and CEO of venture capitalist firm Ariadne Capital, the guest list included Marjorie Leonidas, the ‘Queen of Wi-Fi’, MD of Taggstar and chief commercial officer of Global Reach Technologies, Los Angeles based media lawyer Jimmy Nguyen and Czech born fashion designer Michaela Jedinak.
