The programme will be aimed at the following streams:

  • Medtech/digital health

"2019 was my second London Tech week and it was just as value packed as the first. There is no shortage of events to attend and people to meet – I highly recommend London Tech Week".
-Steve Baxter, Founder & Investor, Transition Level Investments


"London Tech Week is a key event in our calendar and a must-attend for tech companies wanting to connect and network with clients, suppliers, and investors.  We've taken important lessons away from previous LTW events and adjusted our strategy accordingly".
