Silicon Valley comes to the UK (SVC2UK) is a not-for profit programme of industry supported events led by business leaders, investors and serial entrepreneurs and run by volunteers. It is designed to improve the ecosystem for entrepreneurship in the UK, Europe and beyond and drive sustainable growth by helping promising CEOs in their scaling journey, inspire students and fostering relationships with Silicon Valley and Europe.

In 2014, we continued supporting the UK ecosystem by running monthly roundtable discussions for the SVC2UK 100 Club, launching the Science 50 in partnership with the Royal Society, leading the first ever female only trade mission to Silicon Valley and curating a high impact summit in November with events running concurrently in Cambridge, Manchester and London focusing on best practice when scaling up.
