Event description

Description

Wayra UK, part of Telefónica Open Future_, invites you to Wayra UK Demo Day 2017, on Wednesday 15th November.

The event is the highlight of Wayra's year, when our awesome cohort of start-ups show off the benefits of their year of acceleration within the Telefónica network by pitching their businesses to some of the leading investors, entrepreneurs, experts, alumni and the media from across the UK tech sector. The winners of places on our 2018 programme will also be announced.

Speakers this year will include Linford Christie, Olympic gold medalist and one of the most successful British athletes ever and Mark Evans, CEO of O2. MCing the event will be High Impact Communication Consultant, Kymberlie Andrew.

This year, we also will celebrate the successful launch of several ground-breaking partnerships, including our accelerator programme in Oldham that works with start-ups to reduce poverty, our intelligent mobility accelerator in Milton Keynes that seeks to create new smart transport solutions, and the extension and expansion of our joint partnerships with GCHQ, at the Cyber Accelerator, and the Velocity Health collaboration with MSD.
