Lovestruck at Web Wednesday

Calling all Zeros and Ones,

For our 64th social mixer, we're talking the art and science of matchmaking in a busy digital, social and mobile world with another Londoner, Brett Harding, the CEO and Co-Founder of Lovestruck.com.

Brett has been highly successful in turning a student-originated scheme for "chemistry test date in your lunch hour" into a profitable internet business that "delivers smooches and happiness to the masses in style". Follow his daily musing on Twitter (@brettharding), where he describes himself as a "marketeer, tech & gadget lover and a Liverpool football fan".

Please note that the gathering is set for a TUESDAY 20th November so that we can accomodate Brett's special appearance as he is flying in from London (via Singapore).

Come along to find out how "busy people click" and learn how to expand a successful internet start-up into different markets across the world. Sign up on Facebook, LinkedIn or Google Plus.

Mixing starts at 6:30pm and continues until 9:30pm with the interview kicking off at 7:15pm.

If you're in the mood for love and want to put Lovestruck to the test, start by downloading the app for iPhone or Android. (See iOS screenshots below).

Spread the word and share the love!
