Glasshouse Hots Up For Spotify Event

The Glasshouse, the international membership community for entrepreneurs, innovators, start-ups and investors, has today announced that it is releasing a new block of memberships due to intense interest in its next event: On 17th September, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek will break his current media silence to talk about his real life experiences as an entrepreneur in conversation with the BBC's Katie Ledger.

Judith Clegg, The Glasshouse founder said, "We've been under a lot of pressure to open up the membership to allow in a fresh intake of entrepreneurs. It seems that the credit crunch redundancies have given a lot of people the impetus to take control of their own career destiny and as a result the entrepreneurial buzz is louder than ever in London."

The extraordinary media interest in Spotify, and the chance to see its CEO, Daniel Ek, up close and personal has had the phone ringing off the hook in the build-up to the next event. Judith adds, "The criteria is pretty stringent, potential members will still be screened to keep the ratio of real entrepreneurs to investors and others in and around the community up at the right level. We have a hard won reputation for attracting a really great crowd which is why companies like Spotify, Skype, Last fm and Bebo agree to work with us so we won't ever jeopardize that."

Glasshouse membership ensures preferential access to events and is free to entrepreneurs. To apply for membership please email Sylvia at for further details. Tickets for events start at £25 each.

The next Glasshouse event is at 7pm on Thursday 17th September at The Royal College of Physicians, NW1: Pop Idols, a new musical democracy - does the rise of Spotify signal lasting change for the music industry?, with Daniel Ek, CEO of Spotify interviewed by BBC Click's Katie Ledger.
