Event description

Description

Over the past few years, Birmingham & the UK in general has had a booming tech start-up scene - technology & how we use it to improve our lives has never been more exciting.

If you've got an idea for a tech business in the back of your head, come along to hear from a panel of inspirational tech entrepreneurs on how they got started and what they've learned along the way.

Speakers:

In 2016, Tom gave a TEDx talk on Artificial Intelligence and the ‘Future of Technology’ and has gone on to be recognised as an international speaker at events including Mobile World Congress, and Visa Futures. Today, Tom advises governments and institutions on deep technologies and their impact on society and has been recognised by the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce as the Future Face of Innovation and Technology.
