During the 10th annual London Tech Week in June, thousands of international delegates, tech entrepreneurs and London and UK-based businesses joined forces to discuss the next steps to growing London’s tech sector.
London Tech Week welcomed Prime Minister Rishi Sunak for a special fireside chat on AI, Leader of the Opposition Sir Keir Starmer for a discussion on responsible technology and London Mayor Sadiq Khan for a keynote speech during the week, with all noting the next steps to take in developing London’s tech ecosystem. Throughout the week, the message was hammered home of London’s important convening power and its reputation as a leading global financial centre, housing the headquarters of many major banks, investment firms, and venture capital funds.
As part of the programme LCCI hosted a reception attended by business and tech leaders from across the global tech community to celebrate 10 years of the event. Special guest Emma Sinclair MBE, chief executive of Enterprise Alumni discussed the importance of innovation and entrepreneurship in driving positive change within the tech sector. She also spoke about her own experiences of running a cross-Atlantic tech business and the strengths of London’s tech ecosystem.
