Silicon Valley Comes to the UK Scaling up: The next big opportunity 2015
TIME: 17:00 – 18:30
VENUE: Debating Chamber, Cambridge Union Society
An event for 400 CEOs, business leaders, academics and entrepreneurial students. Guest speakers included serial edtech entrepreneur John Katzman; internet marketing expert Hillary Mickell; surgical robotics inventor Catherine Mohr; entrepreneur, gamer and computer scientist Rahul Vohra; consumer electronics visionary Corinne Vigreux and physician-scientist at the cutting edge of healthcare Daniel Kraft.
In 2014, Sherry Coutu’s ‘Scale Up’ report was published, highlighting recommendations for cities, governments, entrepreneurs, corporates and academia on how to support a greater number of scale ups in the UK. This event embraced the topic for our Cambridge community by hearing from entrepreneurs who have scaled up their own businesses and could share their thinking on the ground breaking technologies that will help shape the next wave of scale ups.
This year’s Cambridge event was organised by Bailey Fisher Executive Search and presented in partnership with Cambridge University Press, Barclays and Google for Entrepreneurs. The event formed part of the larger SVC2UK programme taking place across London, Cambridge and Manchester that was led by London & Partners.
