MarketOrders Co-Founder invited to meet with Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice at St James Palace

Our Co-Founder & COO, Sukhi Jutla, was recently invited to meet with Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice at the royal residence St James Palace, where the Princess hosted the Good Growth Summit.

Designed to celebrate female entrepreneurs, the Good Growth Summit connects and inspires female leaders from across the US and UK technology ecosystem.

This exclusive invite-only event is designed to build connections and collaborations and to help female founders access the tools they need to start and scale their companies.

This year, the Summit was hosted by Her Royal Highness as she is a passionate advocate for helping to promote more women into technology and herself works for an artificial intelligence company in London.

The Princess expressed how she was personally inspired and encouraged by seeing so many female entrepreneurs driving the UK commerce forward. From her own business experiences, she expressed she didn’t underestimate the courage and conviction it takes to succeed and offered her support as we collectively work to create a more gender-balanced environment for innovation.

The event kicked up with a wonderful lunch reception followed by an afternoon of inspirational leaders sharing their top tips and personal journeys into the forays of tech.

Some of the guests had flown in from Silicon Valley and they shared their experiences in the hope of forging new relationships with our incredible UK talent pool.

The stories that we heard were all geared to inspire and fuel personal and business growth and it was wonderful to hear such inspiring stories.

Amongst the speakers were:

  • Joanna Hoffman – who joined Apple as the 5th employee and worked with Steve Jobs
  • Jennifer Rademaker – Executive Vice President – Mastercard
  • Linda Avey – Co-Founder of genetics testing company 23 and Me

The event concluded with a sparkling champagne reception. We will share official photographs once they are released from the Palace!
