Tech Forum

Tech Forum is a platform for Swedish-British tech and investors to meet, learn and to discuss. Celebrating the best of the latest in technology from across the North Sea, whether it's artificial intelligence, blockchain or virtual reality (and beyond) - the forum features leading experts at global success stories, exciting entrepreneurs and challengers alongside passionate purse-string partners. It is a unique chance for Swedish tech to connect with the world's leading financial centre, and to bring together two of the great tech capitals of the world, London and Stockholm. When in partnership, sparkles happen. 

This was Tech Forum 2019

On 13 June 2019, 200+ guests and 40+ investors gathered at the Swedish Chamber of Commerce’s Tech Forum and Tech Fest at Google’s HQ in London, with the aim to explore the future of the tech landscape. Leading experts from both Swedish and UK businesses shared their views on new and existing technologies, and how to optimise potential alongside the accelerating pace of technological development.

The SCC also organised its pilot London Bootcamp (LINK) with the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth, culminating at the Tech Forum and Tech Fest at Google HQ. Bringing together the top minds from Swedish and UK tech, the activities focused on exploring the applications of future technologies and what makes them successful. The forum, with speakers from across the realms of investment, start-ups, SMEs and large corporations gave their perspectives on new and existing technologies and how to unleash their potential in new applications.

Keynote speakers Paul Murphy, Partner at Northzone, and Andrea Spaccapietra, CIO at Ericsson UK & Ireland, shared insights from their respective fields: the European tech and investment landscape and the potential of 5G. The day ended with Tech Fest on Google’s rooftop.
