Internet World, the founding event at this year’s London Technology Week, has issued a call for entries for its Startup Showcase competition. The contest is offering fifteen tech startups the opportunity to showcase their business for free within its Future of Technology programme.
Applications will be judged by a panel of technology industry thought leaders, including UBM Live, Level 39, Collider and Fried Frank, with selected companies receiving an exhibition package worth £7,000, which includes:
- Exhibition space and furniture
- Pre-show marketing
- On-site promotions via the Internet World event guide and app
- Bespoke mentoring sessions with Level 39
Internet World has been showcasing cutting-edge online innovation for the past 21 years. This year the event, which takes place between 17th-19th June, is relocating to ExCeL in the heart of London’s tech community, and is expecting to attract at least 10,000 attendees.
Officially announced by Boris Johnson on 13 March, London Technology Week is a week of face-to-face events in which businesses – from enterprise to start-ups – government, academia and general technology enthusiasts will come together to showcase London as a global tech leader.
Event manager Nathalie Davies commented: “We’re really excited to offer this free space to startups and hope to find 15 of the most innovative new tech businesses to impress our visitors”.
“The startups will of course gain fantastic exposure from their time at Internet World as they’ll be showcasing their product to tens of thousands of potential buyers”.
