Below is an archived version of the London StartupDigest Events List – a weekly curated listing of the best tech startup events in London. If you would like to get next week’s digest on Monday, sign up here.
I’m just back from Scotland where I was at a The Entrepreneurial Exchange’s annual conference for Scotland’s leading entrepreneurs at the amazing Gleneagles Hotel. One of the key speakers was the former CEO of Sage, Paul Walker and you can read about what he said here
. Paul joined as the 6th employee back when they were a tiny startup in Newcastle making accounting software for the Amstrad PCW word processor! We often complain that there’s no British companies to act as inspiration for young tech entrepreneurs. Well, it may not be sexy but Sage, founded in 1981 now has a market cap of £3.7Bn and employs more than 13,000 people worldwide. It’s a true global leader and it’s great proof that British startups can get big and succeed on a global stage. By the way, Scotland now has its very own StartupDigest. You can subscribe here
Meanwhile here in London this week sees the opening of InnovationWarehouse and they are running a series of events
all week to celebrate.
