Following the innovative game changers and global digital revolution of the last 20 years, tech companies around the world have unprecedented opportunities to reach new markets. London has become one of the hotbeds of global tech innovation and the United States remains one of the most attractive markets for any tech company that wants to fuel their global growth, have access to investment capital and increase profits. Next week, we bring London and the US together for a couple of events.
London Technology Week is one of the highlights in the global technology innovation calendar bringing together start ups, investors, innovators, pitches, trade organisations, government support initiatives, embassies and service providers. For the second year running I’ll be there with our US Tax & Financial Services Corporate Tax Director Brad Albin and Corporate Tax Manager Sitara Zafar to continue our support of the London tech community by participating in these upcoming events. I hope you’ll come out and meet us.
On Thursday June 18th, join us at the Old Street Roundabout Inmarsat Conference Centre for “An Evening with UKTI USA and Friends: Get unique insights into America’s hottest tech hubs. This will also be a chance to talk to everyone about what it’s like to set up in America while enjoying culinary delights from across the United States.

On Wednesday June 17th, join me for the place where we all come to catch up – I wouldn’t miss it:
Swedish beers is the friendliest party for people interested in mobile technology (really anything tech today) and started in October 2001. Join my friend and founder Helen Keegan at the Midsummer Swedish Beers evening. Nothing formal, no speakers, no powerpoint, nothing flashy, just turn up and mingle. Festivities will be held at The Nordic Bar, and will kick off at 6:15pm. Our team will be the ones holding drink tokens so now you have no reason not to come meet us. Swedish Beers RSVP skål
