#SnacksSips: Connecting Large & Small

techUK's speed-networking event at @CampusLondon


  1. On 16 October, we organised a speed-networking event for companies to meet and find potential tech partners. We had a few inspirational talks lined up, as well as Michelle Obama style snacks & sips, to ease the nerves.
  2. We are now organising another #SnacksSips on 22 May at Campus London! More info below!
  3. A load of companies of all sizes, including more than 30 start-ups, took part; everything from web developers, to tech healthcare professionals!
  4. @CampusLondon was a great open space for our networking and 30s pitches, which were promptly cut off by our bell!
  5. Our first speaker was none other than BBC Dragon Piers Linney, Co-CEO of techUK member Outsourcery.
  6. Next up was Diane Perlman, CMO/COO for Startups at Microsoft Ventures UK - an accelerator for budding start-ups with innovative ideas.
  7. Then came the pitches: each company in the room had to give a 30s 'elevator pitch' on what they were doing and who they were looking to partner with.
  8. Last, but not least, was techUK Public Services Board member and Founder of ShapingCloud Carlos Oliveira, who shared his experience of building a successful business through partnerships.
