This four-year London-based series will showcase the Capital as a global hub for tech innovation by inviting London’s most ground-breaking tech entrepreneurs to pitch their businesses to industry leading investors. With five events per year, each will focus on a specific tech sector, drawing in the best start-up, early stage or scaling businesses to be showcased.
