90. Twenty Something London
The go-to guide for the best independent venues and parties in the city
Founders: Pascale Barget and John-Michael Sookias
Founded: September 2012
Twenty Something London has matured from a small blog written in University by founder Pascale Barget to ‘the’ guide for young Londoners and a business with multiple revenue streams and affiliations with some of the best businesses in the city. Listing is generally free on the site but Twenty Something monetises the site through an affordable marketing service, onsite advertisement, premium listings and it runs its own events. And although the idea has developed rapidly, Twenty Something London keeps its founding mission at its core – to connect people to amazing locations and experiences.
Barget (one of our young entrepreneurs to watch) and co-founder John-Michael Sookias are united by their passion for independent businesses; to date, the company has promoted over 300 successful and small independents. The two have their first investment pitch scheduled for later this year and are labouring towards redesigning the site and getting Twenty Something London to go mobile, and eventually global.
