When & Where
Silicon Valley Comes to the UK
Silicon Valley comes to the UK (SVC2UK) is a not-for-profit volunteer-led invitation-only series of events that bring together early stage investors, successful serial entrepreneurs, students and alumni with leading serial entrepreneurs and investors to discuss and debate how and why they have come to create and fund today’s most disruptive technologies that aim to change our world. SVC2UK is working in partnership with London & Partners this year to deliver their programme of events.
London & Partners is a not-for-profit public-private partnership, funded by the Mayor of London and our network of commercial partners. They attract overseas businesses, events, congresses, students and visitors to London and help London businesses go global. They were established in 2011, replacing three predecessor organisations – Visit London, Think London and Study London. With a combined and expanded remit, London & Partners can be a stronger advocate for London across the world.
