SVC2UK 2019 | 18-20th November

Fuelling global growth through the entrepreneurial ecosystem

Since 2006, we have been connecting the best of Silicon Valley to the UK, showcasing the businesses using technology to change the way we live, work and play for the better.

This year we explored how emerging technologies – from healthtech to edtech to cybertech and even to spacetech – are changing the world around us. This year, we questioned how technology is impacting our lives and personal choices while continuing to focus on how today’s businesses have the potential to influence our lives both now and in the future.

Connecting you with world class mentors

During our 3-day summit, we not only host open Masterclass and Thought Leadership events designed to engage and inspire the UK public, but we also host invite-only events such as the Good Growth Summit and CEO Summit. These unique events are specifically designed to connect serial entrepreneurs, industry leaders, investors and leading academics to proven and aspiring CEOs to support their sustainable growth.

Across all our events, we bring together some of the most commercially savvy tech leaders, founders and investors in the world to speak to our audiences. These individuals are not only adept at building and scaling businesses but also excel at balancing profit and purpose to deliver global impact.

“Make purpose the north star to how you guide your strategic and everyday decisions; the way you position your products to your customers.”

Mission Critical

At SVC2UK, our purpose is to fuel the global growth of our entrepreneurial ecosystems. We strive to break open the entrepreneurial community to allow for our scale ups to grow exponentially, new connections for our female community to be created and the next generation of leaders to be inspired.

As we move into our fourteenth year, we are on a mission to open the opportunities afforded to purpose driven businesses and to work together to make sure these opportunities are available for all. At SVC2UK, we believe that every individual has the right to access networks, knowledge and connections that will help them, and their businesses grow.

As demonstrated by our alumni network, we are striving to encourage the expansion of purpose-driven businesses while ensuring that the UK and US entrepreneurial ecosystems are inclusive and diverse in all aspects – sector, gender, age, ethnicity, and more.

This past year, we have also sought to influence the language used to describe purpose-driven businesses and shine a light on the opportunity that exists to push beyond solely driving profit. With 40 million millennials wanting to buy from and work for businesses having a positive impact on society, it is mission critical that we change our perspective on models of growth.
