Emerging Tech Forum



Overview

There’s never been a more exciting time for technology investors - especially in robotics, augmented and virtual reality, mobility and artificial intelligence where the rate of change and innovation will surpass anything we’ve seen before.

These new and disruptive technologies are rapidly going from game-changing ideas to essential tools and the building blocks of the future, and we are already seeing larger private equity firms investing alongside VCs to maximise the opportunity.

This forum will delve into the themes driving change bringing together exciting entrepreneurs, investors, advisers and other industry experts to discuss key challenges and trends.
