Date: 25th May 2017, 1.00pm - 5.00pm Venue: KPMG, Canary Wharf, London

At this event, you will have the opportunity to meet and hear from up to 16 cutting-edge, start-up technology companies to understand how their technology could feed into your own products and services, increase your speed to market with new innovations or streamline internal processes and systems.

This is the 3rd event of its kind and previous SETsquared Open Innovation events have been attended by household corporate names including: Huawei, Dyson, QinetiQ, Nationwide, Intesa Sanpaolo, Barclays, BAE Systems, EDF Energy, Sony, Airbus, IBM, Merck, Schlumberger, Microsoft and Thales.

So why not join other leading companies and take this opportunity to gain exclusive access to some of the most promising technology start-ups in the UK.

The benefits of attending this event include:

  • Reduce the amount of time (and costs!) needed to identify exciting new technologies: with 16 technologies under one roof, you’ll be able to assess lots of opportunities in one hit.
  • Wide-ranging opportunities: the technologies on show will be from across different areas and will range from emerging technologies and early stage start-ups to more established scale-up companies.
  • Pre-screened opportunities: the technologies that make it through to the event will have been through a selection process and chosen from a longer list of applications – so you can be assured of only seeing quality opportunities on the day.
  • Extended reach: there’s the potential on the day to discover technologies and markets and make connections you have not previously considered.
Start-ups are an important source of technology and ideas for larger corporates. As someone whose role is to scout out new technologies, it’s been incredibly useful to hear succinct and polished pitches from such a wide variety of start-ups and have the opportunity to speak directly with them.Dr Dave White, Senior Technology Advisor at Schlumberger
