London Startups Must ‘Storm the Boardrooms’ of Big Business

London Startups Must ‘Storm the Boardrooms’ of Big Business

Original post by ALISTAIR CHARLTON via ibtimes

‘We must storm the boardrooms and let them know we’re here’ was the message given this week by Tech London Advocates, a newly launched group of 150 tech and business leaders who want to build bridges between tiny startups and multinational corporations.

Brainchild of former Skype vice president Russ Shaw, who also directed Telefonica’s Global Innovation division, Tech London Advocates (TLA) launched in east London’s Tech City and aims to help startups access funding and talent, as well as educate them on working with companies who they may otherwise struggle to talk to.

TLA member and partner at Index Ventures Saul Klein said how the UK has the world’s most internet-based economy, with 8.3 percent of gross domestic product coming directly from internet companies in 2010, a figure higher than every other country and expected to grow to 12.4 percent by 2016.
