Technology Through a New Lens

UKBAA and Founders Factory are delighted to invite you to find out about the latest market intelligence from experts on three key areas of investment opportunity: AI, blockchain and digital media.

The event is strictly by invitation only and is aimed at angel and early-stage investors in the UKBAA community.

“We overestimate the impact of tech in the near term and underestimate the impact in the long term” (Amara’s Law) .

During the event, we will explore this law and how it influences investment decision making, whilst also presenting the latest cutting-edge opportunities in technology followed by networking and drinks in the elegant setting of the Bulgari Hotel.

Founders Factory is an early-stage technology incubator and accelerator created by Brent Hoberman and Henry Lane Fox and backed by some of the world’s biggest corporates: L’Oreal, Aviva, Guardian Media Group, Holtzbrinck Macmillan, CSC and easyJet.

Founders Factory is partnering with some of the most promising early-stage tech companies and will launch 200 technology businesses over the next 5 years.
