Mike Dimelow joins the Start Up Programme Panel
The Class of 2020 Start-Up Programme, powered by ASK4, has unveiled the third member of the judging panel.
Mike Dimelow, co-founder and CIO at Advanced Digital Ventures (ADV), will be joining The Class' Director Jorick Beijer and ASK4's founder and CEO Jonathan Burrows to judge between the start-up finalists.
The Class of 2020's Start-Up Programme aims to provide a platform and an extra push for start-ups who are revolutionising student living. Each month until November the programme will recognise a start-up developing a product or service that enhances student life, the future of learning, and the transition to a working career. Four start-ups will then be shortlisted to pitch their inventions at The Class Conference in Milan on 15th November 2018.
Speaking of the programme, ASK4's Jonathan Burrows commented:
“I founded ASK4 when I was 18 years old. I knew it was either going to be a success or I would have a great story to tell in job interviews. ASK4 is a successful business and we are delighted to be sponsoring The Class of 2020’s Start Up Programme so we can give other young entrepreneurs and big thinkers opportunities and encouragement as they seek to realise their potential.”
The addition of Mike Dimelow on the judging panel means the start-ups will have an exclusive opportunity to impress the co-founder of an organisation that backs the most innovative, highest potential, and globally disruptive technology businesses in the world. Speaking of his role at ADV Mike said:
"My role is to help position ADV as a collaborative investor that founders - obsessed by scaling big digital technology businesses - want to work with. I care passionately about meeting founders with sight of digital technology solutions that are capable of defining an industry or generation."
