London Tech Week: selling into the public sector

Yesterday techUK hosted its London Tech Week – Selling into the Public Sector event. Representatives from techUK’s public sector teams provided some insights in to how UK Government procurement works, what are the opportunities, how to overcome the challenges and tips on how to secure business. Guests also heard from Seth Finnegan, UK Chief Executive Officer at Informed Solutions and Jenny Mulholland, Public Sector Lead at Softwire, who both shared their success stories on public sector procurement and offered tips for success.

In the evening, DIT hosted their LTW party in which DCMS SOS Matt Hancock provided the keynote and explained to delegations from across the world that Britain is truly open for tech businesses to thrive. The event took place fittingly in the Science Museum and was well attended with a real buzz in the air.

Today I will be heading to the Indian High Commission to support the Access India Programme (AIP), launched in September 2017 by the High Commission of India in London. This flagship programme, assisting market entry into India, is the first of its kind for supporting UK businesses to access the Indian Government's Make in India initiative. The programme focuses on providing support to small and medium size UK enterprise.
