Digital Mission Teams Up With Mayor of London for Enterprise Tech Mission to Chicago, Boston, NYC

The Great Tech Expedition - Chicago, Boston, NYC - 5-10 Oct 2014

We’re excited to announce the next Digital Mission trip, the Great Enterprise Tech Expedition, a collaboration with UK Trade & Investment, the Mayor of London and TechCityUK, supporting 20 of the UK’s fastest growing cloud software firms on a whistlestop 3-city US mission covering Chicago, Boston and NYC from 5-10th Oct 2014.

B2B startups are often seen as less glamourous than their consumer-facing counterparts, but it’s clear from the huge interest in this trip - 15 of the places have already been snapped up - that FinTech, EdTech and HealthTech (insert your own B2B buzzword here)  are thriving.

Enterprise Tech Mission

The trip will explore commercial opportunities for EnterpriseTech firms and build relationships with key US enterprises across financial & business services, life sciences, retail, media, education and FMCG/CPG brands across these key three cities in the US.

The US cloud computing industry has grown from an estimated $46bn in 2008 to $150bn in 2014 with nearly 50% of worldwide cloud computing revenue coming from the USA. Gartner forecasts worldwide SaaS revenues at $21.3bn, $22bn for PaaS and enterprise software revenues of $347bn in 2015.

Last Chance to Apply

The deadline for applications is 1st September and with places allocated to qualifying companies on a first-come, first-served basis and with huge demand 15 have already been snapped up.

The application process is very straightforward with subsidies for London-based SMEs reducing the cost to £500+VAT including accommodation in the US.
