Description

Join SwiftScale for the culmination of their London scale-up programme.


This is the final event of SwiftScale's Winter '17 programme in collaboration with Macquarie Group.

The SwiftScale Showcase represents a unique opportunity for business leaders to engage with a broad spectrum of fast-growth startups (scale-ups) transforming the future of business.

Overview:

The scale-ups cover a range of technology verticals: Big Data, FinTech, HRTech, LegalTech, MarTech & Security and hail from across the globe: Belgium, Canada, Israel, Switzerland and (of course) the UK. Collectively, they have raised >£40m to date and have an incredible breadth of enterprise clients ranging from Airbnb to L’Oréal to Wells Fargo. Attendees will hear from our scale-ups as they discuss their genesis, journey and experiences of engaging with large enterprises.

This will be followed by a keynote from Paul Lee, a UK Partner and the Global Head of Research for TMT at Deloitte. Paul will reveal his Prediction for 2018, insights on technology & consumer trends that will transform enterprise in the coming year. The event concludes with networking and hands-on product demonstrations with the current cohort.

Paul Lee

In his global role, Paul has authored over 80 TMT reports including Deloitte’s 16th annual Predictions for the Technology, Media and Telecommunications series. In 2016, Predictions launched in over 50 countries and its points of view are featured in broadcast, online, and published media around the globe.

Paul also leads the Deloitte Global Mobile Consumer Survey, now in its sixth year, which tracks usage of mobile around the world, based on a 53,000 user survey fielded in 31 countries. Paul comments regularly on the TV market, and has been invited to author the companion reports for the Royal Television Society’s Cambridge Conference, the IBC Leaders’ Summit, and the Guardian International Television Festival.

He is a frequent commentator on television, radio, online, and press. Paul has published 32 columns in the Financial Times, specialising in analysis of current trends in the TMT sector from a numerical perspective. He is a frequent speaker at industry and closed door conferences and was on the organizing committees of the Royal Television Society’s Cambridge and London conferences.
