ANNOUNCEMENT: Deputy CEO Tech City Investment Organisation to keynote #Croydon #TechCity Launch


By - Sunday 13th January, 2013

It is my great pleasure to announce that Benjamin Southworth (Deputy CEO, Tech City Investment Organisation) has agreed to keynote Croydon Tech City’s 2013 Launch Event on Thurs 24th January 7:30pm at Matthews Yard, Croydon.

Benjamin is a well-respected and long-standing member of East London’s and Cambridge’s startup ecosystems, and has coached, mentored, and launched a series of startups and startup events over the past few years. Last year, he was chosen to take up the Deputy CEO role at the Tech City Investment Organisation – where he works alongside Joanna Shields, previously Vice President and Managing Director at Facebook, EMEA.

Benjamin’s acceptance to keynote our 2013 launch event is a great coup for the Croydon Tech City movement which – having only been birthed three months ago – is starting to make considerable strides.

As well as Benjamin’s keynote, the launch night will also include presentations from the Croydon Tech City team as we unveil new recruits and our six month programme to help grow Croydon’s startup ecosystem.

Croydon Tech City FTW.
