2 FEBRUARY

UBS, 1 FINSBURY AVENUE, EC2m 2PP, London

 

Launched in June 2015, the Firestartr Spark Series has been gathering top European entrepreneurs, investors and operators under one roof - to raise, argue, debate and contemplate the hottest issues in tech: from automation to music, blockchain, Big Data, IoT, health tech and more.

"As starters, energisers, grafters and finishers ourselves, we appreciate the bloody-minded determination that goes into getting these ventures off the ground, let alone to make them soar. For some there is the elation and sheer terror of building their first business. For others this is the culmination of decades of experience and learning wrung from endless nights of code and caffeine."        Richard Muirhead
