After a two-year recess, Startup Catalyst is recommencing its London Tech Week missions to give budding entrepreneurs, investors and startups a boots-on-the-ground experience of what it takes to go global.

Australian startups looking to get a foothold into the European market are strongly encouraged to attend.

“We know it can be daunting to take your business global,” said head of Startup Catalyst, Pauline Fetaui. “These missions provide valuable connections for taking that first step beyond Australian shores.”

The London Tech Week mission provides numerous networking and learning opportunities for all participants.

“This is a golden opportunity for entrepreneurs, technologists and innovators to play catch-up, after not being able to go anywhere for two years. This mission provides access to the top tier tech companies, investors and events in addition to access to London Tech Week,” Fetaui added.

London Tech Week is the biggest tech event in the UK, with more than 300 speakers over five days taking part. This year’s event will focus on exploring the next generation of tech innovation and building a thriving tech industry.

As well as attending various events over the week, participants will also be mentally challenged, as the program seeks to ‘reprogram’ participants’ minds of what’s possible for their business.

The cost of the mission is $5,800, not including airfares. Potential participants have until 13 May to express their interest in attending.

Startup Catalyst is part of ACS.
