Scaling up your Business

Silicon Valley comes to the UK (SVC2UK) is a series of invitation only events that bring together investors, serial entrepreneurs, students and policy makers and first time CEOs with  serial entrepreneurs and investors from the US to discuss how and why they have come to create and fund today’s most disruptive technologies that aim to change our world and help our scale up CEOs to grow their companies and become world beaters. It was founded by Reid Hoffman, Sherry Coutu CBE and Ellen Levy in 2006 and is now run by London & Partners, a not-for-profit public-private partnership funded by the Mayor of London and a network of commercial partners.

  • “Entrepreneurs are like

    visionaries. One of the ways they run forward is by viewing the thing they’re doing as something that’s going to be the whole world.”
