About this Event

Welcome to London HI Tech Festival - Tech for all. A global Sino-British tech event hosted by Somerco & Cocoon Global. A part of the Panda Innovation series.

London HI Tech Festival - Tech for All is embedded in a series of events to connect British and Chinese entrepreneurs and investors and foster the Golden Age of Sino-British collaboration. Through these events we are seeking to provide UK talent and key opinion leaders with a platform to connect locally with Chinese investors. Join us on October the 30th to discover the latest tech developments and investment trends and join the global discussion.

Since we have many different panels on emerging technologies we have gained interest among investors and plenty come to listen and find talent. We are now introducing a pitch session for companies to pitch for £1000. Besides those investors attending we connect entrepreneurs to our ever growing network of investors in UK and abroad.
