Unlocking Global Tech

Start Local, Scale Global

Ever wanted to travel 40,075km in a day, taking in local tech ecosystems along the way?

Join us on Tuesday 8 September as we navigate across the globe, hearing from leading tech figures in Australia, Singapore, Europe, the UK and US to discover how to expand and scale in different regions post Covid-19, and the countries that are open for business.

Hosted exclusively online, we’ll be kicking off down under at 8am BST, as we hear from leading investors, trade commissioners and tech founders in Australia. We’ll then be heading over to Singapore at 9:45am BST and Europe (Germany, Netherlands and France) at 11:30am BST. Then, after a short breather, we’ll be hearing from the UK at 2pm BST followed by a trip to the US at 4pm BST.

As part of London Tech Week, we'll hear from a host of panel discussions, keynote speeches and fireside chats from around the world, featuring high-profile members of local tech hubs, giving you exclusive insight into what makes each region tick.

So, grab your virtual passports, fasten your seatbelts, make sure your seat back and laptops are in their full upright position. and join us as we navigate the global tech scene on 8 September.
