18 Sep What will Brexit mean for London’s tech sector?
This event takes place from 2pm – 3.30pm. There are just over 7 months to go until the UK’s exit from the EU but what happens next is anyone’s guess.
Nowhere is the uncertainty being felt more acutely than in London’s burgeoning tech industry.
Technology is the capital’s fastest-growing sector but the industry says Brexit has negatively damaged London’s global tech reputation and made recruitment even more challenging.
The UK’s conveyor belt for tech talent can’t keep up with demand and the inability to recruit EU talent will only make the challenge more acute.
UK tech companies will need to fill hundreds of thousands of extra jobs by 2020 – a figure which far exceeds the number of new visas being introduced by the government.
BusinessCloud’s latest event ‘What will Brexit mean for London’s tech sector?’ will discuss a range of issues from what an EU deal needs to look like, the impact on start-ups, recruitment, investment and opportunities to do business beyond the EU.
A panel of experts and tech companies will share their insights on how London’s tech sector survives and ultimately thrives post-Brexit.
