Here at Zesty we were honoured and humbled to be asked if James our CEO and Co Founder would like to talk to the Imperial College Entrepreneurs Society on Monday night this week.
In their own words “Imperial Entrepreneurs aims to promote and encourage entrepreneurship within Imperial College. Not only do we provide our members with the chance to network with successful entrepreneurs and business leaders, we also support them with their first steps into the exciting journey of becoming an entrepreneur.”
For over 2 hours, James discussed his 20 year career as a successful entrepreneur and business leader and how Zesty quickly developed from an idea to a website to a business.
“One day we researched the size of all the healthcare markets in the UK, did a competitive analysis by sector, read various OFT, DTI and Forrester reports, analysed the number of searches for each healthcare service on Google every month and quickly saw there was a huge opportunity to improve access to healthcare appointments online.”
He explained the vision for Zesty as an online healthcare marketplace, a search engine for health care appointments if you look at it another way and how we as a team are trying to solve the problem of booking available appointments online 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. James also discussed how Zesty is focused on developing our suite of web and mobile products to make booking a dentist, private doctor, physiotherapist, osteopath, dermatologist etc… as easy as booking a flight, hotel or restaurant.
Lots of students were kind enough to express their thanks to James for taking the time to answer all their questions about starting your first business, being an entrepreneur, building a team, finding investors, developing ideas into business models etc..
“Thanks for your incredibly candid and practical talk this evening! 100% the most useful talk of its kind I have ever attended! Thanks again for the talk! “
“Thank you for the incredible talk at Imperial on Mon. I was glad to have been in the audience. Looking fwd to using Zesty myself.”
