It is my pleasure to announce that Bianca Miller, a finalist in the most recent series of BBC One’s The Apprentice, will be keynoting the Croydon Tech City September launch on Thursday 24th September, 7.30pm at Matthews Yard.

After studying Business Management at the University of Sussex, Bianca joined one of the world’s largest management and technology consulting firms as an HR advisor, before moving on to a brief stint in recruitment. In 2012, Bianca took the leap to launch her own business at the age of 23 and her personal branding company, The Be Group, was named as one of the Startups 100 businesses of 2013.

In 2014, Bianca graced our screens as part of a cohort of twelve on The Apprentice. She reached the final and was awarded the runner-up position after Lord Sugar crowned Mark Wright as the winner.

Register now for September’s event

Miller’s acceptance to keynote our 2015 launch event is a great coup for the Croydon Tech City movement which – now entering its third year – has made considerable impact on Croydon’s economy (The FT), property market (The Times), education (The Croydon Citizen), inward investment (The Evening Standard) and reputation (Metro), and is now London’s fastest growing tech cluster.

As well as Miller’s keynote speech which will be about the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and building a business, there will also be talks from the Croydon Tech City team about our plans for the next twelve months, and two local tech startup entrepreneurs.

This event is sure to be oversubscribed: to secure your place, please register now.
