11th-17th June is London Tech Week. As you probably know, it’s an event for the likes of Google and Microsoft to talk about how marvellous and “disruptive” they are.
Here at Outlandish we’re thinking to organise an event as a part of Tech Week to talk about CoTech. We’re thinking something along the lines of “From Disruption to Co-Operation: improving efficiency and productivity via collaboration” or something. It should be a good opportunity to reach new audiences, collaborators, clients, maybe even a few enemies! Hopefully we can convert some new start-ups, and even established companies.
What do people think? Is anyone up for getting involved? We would want to advertise through the official Tech Week site which costs £300 for a normal listing or £900 for a premium listing. So if each co-op chipped in £10-30 we could do that. We’re thinking an evening event, but it could also be all day. And we can host at Space4, or hire out somewhere swankier and more central perhaps if people are keen. It would be great to get a sense if anyone is:
- Up for chipping in £10, £30 or more
- Would like to speak, or can recommend some speakers
- Has good ideas for the format
Let me know. Thanks.
