The Silicon Valley comes to UK 2011 is co-chaired by Sherry Coutu and Reid Hoffman and was inspired by a programme that has been run successfully in Oxford for a number of years. The intention is to inspire students and alumni to consider starting or joining an entrepreneurial business at some point after graduation and to foster relationships between the leading entrepreneurs, angels and investors and scientists from both world centres of ideas.

This is the FIRST time the conference has taken place in TechCity, but all previous ones have  received very favourable reviews.  see here for last year's videos...
