Silicon Valley Comes to the UK

siliconvalleyHere at Startacus we’re pretty fond of the whole concept of bringing people together, sharing ideas and collaborating and of course of any places, projects or initiatives that do just that. One of the latest to come to to our attention is the forthcoming Silicon Valley Comes to the UK programme.

SVC2UK is a not for profit series of industry backed events led by prominent business leaders, investors and entrepreneurs and run by students. Its’ primary purpose is to help improve and develop the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the UK, Europe and further afield. This year, SVC2UK launches on November 9th and is expected to attract over 6500 attendees who will attend an extensive programme of events including coaching and mentoring sessions, workshops, masterclasses, lectures as well as competitive events.

The programme kicks off this year with a Startup Weekend event where over 2000 students and developers will embark on a mission to create high impact apps and websites, using UK government public data, with the fundamental aim of “rewriting the rules of the new economy.”The theme of this year’s event is “Don’t just Start Up, Scale Up” and the organisers hope that those attending will be inspired to not only create new businesses, but to develop the mindsets that are needed to become global players.

With over 30 inspirational speakers from Silicon Valley in attendance, this is one programme that, if given the opportunity to attend, you really should. After all, where else could you get the opportunity to hear these people and also get the chance to debate, discuss and perhaps even create innovative and disruptive technologies that could have an impact on our world for many years to come...

Are you aware of any other startup initiatives or programmes that we should be featuring? Why not let us know over at the forum.
