Fostering the public sector ecosystem

Following the success of our market specific fostering the ecosystem events we are pleased to bring you an even bigger dynamic joint public sector event where you will be able to meet partners across the public sector ecosystem.

This event offers tech companies large and small, from new players to established companies within the public sector tech market, the opportunity to network, share ideas and identify future business partners.

It is an opportunity for SMEs to pitch ideas to companies currently providing services to the public sector, and for large companies to expand the network of SMEs they work with.

How it Works:

We will have four dedicated areas to each public sector programme: central government, local public services, health and social care and defence. In each breakout you will hear from large companies operating in your chosen public sector area and will then have a chance to pitch!

Large Companies: Will provide an overview of where they see the benefits of working with SMEs and why SMEs are important for delivering services to the public sector.

SMEs: The SMEs who attend will have an opportunity to pitch! You only have 1 minute. We would like you to cover the following:

· What does your company do?

· What are you looking for in partnering with larger companies?

After the pitches we will all reconvene for some networking over pizza and beer!
