As Croydon Tech City comes to the end of another exciting year and prepares for a couple of months of well-deserved rest for both the team and the community, on Thursday 24th July at 7:30pm Matthews Yard will play host to the final CTC of the current season.

To attend, please sign up on Facebook here or notify Jonny Rose .

Snupps wants to appeal to the amateur collector in all of us. Whether your secret passion is hoarding fine wines or Pokémon figurines, it’s built the virtual shelf space where you can catalogue your collection by snapping photos of your stuff, uploading them to Snupps’ cloud platform and then slicing and dicing your virtual things into as many virtual shelves as you please — sharing the ones you’re particularly proud of, if you so choose.


Chris Howson (Founder, Just Croydon)

After a rollercoaster ride of a year, Croydon Tech City has grown as a team, a community, and as a culture.

Over the course of the evening the Croydon Tech City team will be taking stock of the past few months looking at highlights and successes, and – more importantly – where we intend to take the movement over the course of 2014 to 2015.


Whether you are a developer, VC, tech founder or just an interested local – there will be something for everyone on the night and opportunity to meet with some of Croydon’s most exciting and dynamic personalities.

If you would like to attend, please sign up on Facebook here or .
