Brexit be Damned -- London's Tech Scene is Thriving, and They're Not Going to Stop Now
Deputy Mayor of London for Business Rajesh Agrawal & TechFire CEO David Murphy
We're just back from London, and it's clear that while London's tech leaders -- like us, too -- wish that the Brexit vote never happened -- they're determined to thrive anyway.
We came away extremely impressed by the London tech scene.
Read about it yourself in London & Partners' excellent PDF overview of the London Tech Scene.
While in London, TechFire CEO David Murphy had a chance to sit down with tech leaders including Deputy Mayor of London for Business Rajesh Agrawal (himself a highly successful fintech entrepreneur), Tech London Advocates founder Russ Shaw, CEO Gerard Grech and colleagues from Tech City UK (the group established by Prime Minister David Cameron), as well as Pru Ashby from London & Partners, the Mayor of London's economic development & tourism promotion agency.
We encourage the TechFire community to make plans to attend London Tech Week in 2018 (which attracts 45,000 people!) and couldn't be more excited about deepening ties between L.A., S.F. and London.
