London Tech Week and #LDNTechWeek was all over Twitter last week making it hard to miss! We were busy – in addition to organising our event with UK Trade & Investment and JMB Partnership, we also helped two clients with their media relations campaigns.
Tech Teach In – How to successfully launch and grow in London took place on 18 June and was our opportunity to get companies who had established in the UK to share their knowledge and experience with other companies thinking about landing. Thank you to Fitaborate, Plan Brothers, Lovis and MC Global Solutions for being such great panellists – the event was hugely over-subscribed and was well received by all who attended.

DealGlobe, a digital platform focused on small to medium sized M&A and capital raise deals across Europe and Asia, hosted the second China Britain Investment and Partnership Forum on 19th June. The all day forum featured a number of high profile business leaders from both China and the UK including Dr Gerald Lyons (Chief Economic Advisor to the Mayor of London), Alex White (Regional Director, EIU) Patrick Zhong (Fosun International), John Liu (China Equity), and Chen Chao (China Investment Group). We secured media opportunities including a live TV interview on BBC World Business Report and articles in Forbes and Just Entrepreneurs.
