Tech Nation Talks: North East

May 23, 2019, 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm, Details on Eventbrite

Tech Nation Report - UK Tech on the Global Stage

We are Tech Nation, the UK network for ambitious digital tech entrepreneurs.

This summer we're taking Tech Nation on the road to mark the launch of the Tech Nation Report 2019, the annual state of the union on UK tech and digital industries.

Join us at PROTO: The Emerging Technology Centre for an evening of insight, panel discussion and networking, as we explore how the UK's digital tech ecosystem stacks up against global competition while discussing the North East's role specifically.

This is an event bringing together founders, entrepreneurs, investors and tech ecosystem partners to make new connections, gain further insight into the tech ecosystem at large and celebrate the success of the local sector. We'd be delighted to have you join us!


Tech Nation's Jamie Hardesty will Chair a panel discussing the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges of North East tech. Panellists include:

Jo York, Co-Founder and CCO, Ricochet Technologies

James Foster, Investment and Transaction Lead, ADV

Laura Richards, Head of Comms, Sunderland Software City

Pete Daykin, Co-Founder and CEO, Wordnerds

Following the panel we'll be providing complimentary food and drinks to be enjoyed amid networking.
