Join us at WeWork’s brand new Spitalfields location for an evening exploring the world’s biggest tech market, the USA. Hosted by UK Trade & Investment, Pitch NYC and Fried Frank the evening will feature top insight fuelled by drinks and snacks from our friends at WeWork.
Discover the market opportunities, how to build your business and hear how to target US VCs to secure investment. UKTI’s staff from San Francisco, Chicago and New York will provide a pan-US perspective. Plus we'll hear the warts'n'all Entrepreneurs' perspective.
