A Tale of Tech City: Launch Event
- 2nd July 2012, 09:00AM
- Google Campus, 4-5 Bonhill Street, London EC2A 4BX
Tech City has generated much excitement, and its not hard to see why. In the midst of a recession, the UK's digital economy appears to be growing and at the heart of it are the digital firms that form East London's tech cluster.
Government's Tech City policy is focused on supporting digital entreprenuers, attracting foreign investment and the potential of the Olympic Park as a site for digital firms in the future.
This new report picks apart these three strands of policy and suggests a revised and more focused approach. The research also looks at the rise of these 'micro-multinational' digital fims and asks how London can continue to provide the right environment for them to grow.
Lead author Max Nathan will launch the findings of the research with Rob Whitehead Deputy Director (Research) at Centre for London chairing. Kit Malthouse, London's Deputy Mayor for Business & Enterprise, Sarah Wood, co-founder of Unruly and entrepreneur Matt Biddulph (Dopplr, Product Club) will respond.
This in an invite only launch. If you would like to know more or attend, contact us at email@example.com.
Please note that the location of the event has moved and is now taking place at Google Campus.
