I am in London today, speaking at Founders Forum to a group of exciting tech entrepreneurs, and also with Virgin Pulse at SuccessConnect, discussing and learning how to best take care of teams to help them succeed. It’s good timing, with our personalised technology wellbeing business in town in the middle of London Tech Week.
London Tech Week is a great celebration of the capital’s thriving technology sector and entrepreneurial spirit. It brings together the very best start-up talent, investors and innovators from all over the world.
I am a keen supporter of the Mayor’s London Is Open campaign and in a challenging climate, it is important that we continue to show that London is an open, dynamic and outward-looking international city.
At Virgin we recognise the need to help small business owners and have developed a series of programmes such as VOOM and Virgin StartUp. We also see the potential for entrepreneurs to be global problem solvers.
Virgin is passionate about supporting ideas that will provide solutions to issues relating to sustainability, urbanisation and the future of transport – all key issues for London and beyond.
