A British conference to bring together investors, entrepreneurs, web designers and developers and other innovators was in part the result of a project created in the Landmark Education Self-Expression and Leadership Programme, according to IT News Online. The event was held on August 31st in London with about 50 innovators taking part.
“In the course they challenge you to think about the charities and community groups that you could be more involved in,” said co-founder Peter Thomsom, referring to Landmark’s SELP. I had been thinking for a long time about how to bring my friends from different work backgrounds together, so Converge+UK was a perfect project to get involved with.”
The event was designed to bring professionals from the different areas of technology, design and business together to support London’s startup community. The event featured real-life, practical examples of what’s worked and what hasn’t.
