Over the last few months we have been seeking out these start-ups, and confirming their attendance. We have grouped almost 20 companies into three broad categories – in order to give you the broadest possible view in three days that London has to offer – they are:
- Established companies – recently launched companies which have quickly grown to £2m+ revenue)
- Emerging start-ups – companies with great clients and technology, but are earlier in their journey, validated with six-figure client wins
- Future stars of the media and adtech scene – the most promising of a new wave of London adtech start-ups; again with specific examples of direct relevance to the publishing industry.
The format of the roadshow will include private case studies from the Established companies, with unique opportunities to learn about their business and its impact to publishing, and experience their culture first hand and visit their offices / work environments (often co-working spaces and incubators).
Delegates will be inspired by the Emerging category, with insights into how these businesses have been created and are on the fast track to success.
The team at FIPP and The Accelerator Network will conclude the tour with a ‘speed dating’ format, with with several high-growth adtech start-ups being introduced in quick succession to seek out opportunities for our publishers from the next generation of tech start-ups.
Accompanying all of this will be exclusive private dinners in the heart of London’s ‘Tech City’ for the delegates, allowing time to reflect on the day’s meetings and discuss their impact. In addition senior executives on the FIPP London Start-up Tour will also be invited to selected evening events as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week, (of which The Accelerator Network is an official partner).
