17th July 2018: Tech Severn Business Breakfast

We’re in the middle of a tech revolution…

Are you a tech company based in Shropshire or Telford that wants to meet like minded, innovative people? Do you want to hear more about the opportunities for Shropshire to grow upon its existing strengths in geospatial, manufacturing and environmental technologies, to become the place for digital innovation in many fields including artificial intelligence, open source data, digi health, sports tech and assistive technology?

This will be your chance to network with business leaders, local politicians and innovators; discover potential business opportunities, and make vital connections you might not ordinarily have made, all over breakfast.
