Tech Forum - Scaling future technologies
13 June 15:30 - 18:30
Venue: Google UK, Six Pancras Square, Kings Cross, London N1C 4AG


How do we adopt already existing tech and unleash its potential in new applications? How do investors look at the next generation of technological innovation and how can they judge what technologies will be the most dominant and influential in the future?

In this year’s Tech Forum we explore the future tech landscape as we bring together start-ups, SMEs, large corporations and investors to discuss the applications of blockchain, AI, AR/VR and other technologies, and what makes them successful.

What are the main barriers for start-ups to adopt existing tech and unleash its potential in new applications? What made the forerunners within their industries and how do they stay relevant after that big break? How do the investors foresee the potential of future innovations and how do they decide what to invest in?

Speakers from the realms of investment, SME's, large corporations, and start-ups will give different perspectives into new and existing technologies and look to the future.


Marielle Lindgren, CEO of Ericsson UK & Ireland

Marielle will speak on the countless opportunities with 5G and how it can act as a platform for future applications of tech and accelerate innovation in a broad set of industry verticals.
