Tech London Advocates: Investor Showcase 2.0

The Investor Showcase is back!

What impact will Brexit have on tech investment? What are investors looking for in post-Brexit Britain? What does Trump’s USA and the rise of China mean for the London and UK tech ecosystem?

TLA is hosting the largest private sector tech event of 2019 dedicated to the biggest questions facing tech investors, entrepreneurs and tech businesses.

Expect around three hours of content, leading investors, fast-growth entrepreneurs, debates and the return of Oli Barrett, DJ Alice and the TLA Marketplace.

We are delighted to welcome Carolyn Fairbairn, Director-General of the CBI and Karen McCormick, founder of Beringea, as keynote speakers.

Tickets will be £20 inc VAT per person. TLA is a not-for-profit organisation and this will be used to cover the cost of the event. If this is an issue for you or your company, you are welcome to have a free ticket (Russ wants to ensure that events are open and accessible to all Advocates). Please let Russ or Caroline Cooper at Seven Hills know, and they will provide you with a promo code for a free ticket.

Special thanks to Here East for hosting the event, and to Beringea for acting as lead sponsor.
