UKBAA’s 4-year Tech Invest Showcasing programme is a key support of the Mayor of London’s ambition to boost London as a global tech hub.
Two major initiatives have been launched by the Mayor of London to provide a boost to the tech sector in the capital.
Sadiq Khan announced the initiatives at WIRED Live yesterday, confirming that City Hall intends to fund 20 investment days in the next four years.
These investment days are intended to give firms the chance to attract funding to enable them to grow and therefore increase the number of organisations in the tech sector.
Funding to the tune of £280,000 will be provided by the Greater London Authority. This will be matched by the UK Business Angels Association (UKBAA) for the various events over the next few years, each of which will focus on different aspects of the tech sector.
Coaching will be available for business leaders, who will also be connected to experienced investors in the industry.
