Event description

Description

Join us as we launch ‘Let’s Talk Tech’ - the 10 series podcast that showcases the technology innovations taking place in London through interviews with the founders and technology leaders themselves.

We’ll be launching the podcast with a live panel debate featuring speakers from the podcast. During the debate we’ll be discussing questions such as:

  • How do you build a support network of founders in London?

  • Raising investment in the capital - how hard is it really?

  • Growing your team in London - is there enough talent and how to attract them?

  • Managing your mental health in the hot seat - is it possible?

  • London - are we going to win the tech race?

Speakers

Colleen Wong, Founder The Gator Watch (Techsixtyfour)

Colleen also started off in the world of Investment Banking and it was only during her time off on maternity leave was the idea for The Gator Watch conceived. Colleen's idea started when she was at a Farm Park in the UK and heard over the intercom that a little boy was lost. Driven by the fear of losing her own son and daughter, she then researched into ideas for ways to track and communicate with children that don't involve the use of a smartphone. Techsixtyfour and The Gator Watch were born!

By providing easy access to accurate clinical information at the right time and inviting patients to take part in their own care, myrecovery is redefining post-operative recovery and transforming patient experience.
