Summary

Bringing together the best, the brightest and Brexit.

Since it first arrived in London in 2014, Disrupt has established itself as the best place to find the hottest new digital businesses and, for founders, the very best place to launch such a business.

This year is slightly different.

On 5 and 6 December Disrupt London is taking over The Copper Box Arena in Stratford for a two-day tech extravaganza.

But not only will new startups be debuting and high-profile speakers be speaking, but Disrupt is aiming to tackle the question on everyone’s lips, how will Brexit change UK tech?

Baroness Martha Lane Fox, the Government’s Digital Minister Matt Hancock, Balderton Capital’s James Wise, and many many more tech leaders will be discussing and debating the impact of this crucial decision.

Will Paris or Berlin steal London’s tech crown, or are we safe for now? How will Britain’s investment landscape be transformed once we leave the EU? Are challenger banks like Monzo and Tandem at risk? What about the world of property technology?

Find out at Disrupt London 2016 which runs across 5 – 6 December 2016 at London’s Copper Box Arena, early bird tickets start at £950 (and Memo readers save another £150).
