After moving to London from Spain four months ago, David Guerra Terol, ofMotion4Startups, provides foreign entrepreneurs with 3 key tips for settling in to London.
I still remember how people were astonished that on my first day in London I attended an event in TechHub to meet some people and start networking. However, the reason why I did it was pretty simple: London is one of the most hectic cities in the world, so there is no point in wasting your time (and money).
So if you want to really enjoy the impressive startup community of Tech City, you should definitely come with your homework done and be prepared to:
1. Ask and get as much information from the Tech City Investment Organisation (TCIO), UKTI and London & Partners
These are the business concierges of London. Whatever you are looking for (events, workspaces, influencers, PR, legal information, residence, …) they will be more than happy to help, or point you in the right direction if they can’t.
