Tech London Advocates: Investor Showcase
Thu 11 May 2017, 14:00 – 20:00 BST
Our biggest event yet celebrates the venture capitalists, unicorn founders and world-leading entrepreneurs and funders, all driving the continued success of London's technology sector.
Amidst geo-political turbulence, market uncertainty and an emerging new world order of global economic powerhouses, London's place in the global investor community could be called into question about its future impact tech ecosystems.
If you're an angel, VC or founder of a fast-growth tech firm, you should have questions about the future. The Tech London Advocates Investor Showcase will be a good way to provide some answers and insights.
