We had a brilliant Demo Day, celebrating our successful year and looking forward to an even more successful 2018!
Taking place at our Soho HQ, the star-studded agenda thrilled one of the biggest audiences that we have had for Demo Day. Guests included O2 CEO Mark Evans who delivered one of two fantastic keynotes of the day, that were interspersed by start-up pitches and quick-witted MCing from Kymberlie Andrew.
Olympic Champion Linford Christie OBE delivered a speedy keynote and answered thought-provoking questions from the floor to cross the finish line. Speaking on his career, Christie noted: “I trained every day as I didn’t want to get beaten” – an inspiring message to our new and old start-ups.
Amongst the buzz we also announced our brilliant 2018 cohort of new start-ups! It was an exciting day at Wayra UK and we are all very much looking forward to the great things to come.
See what we got up to here, here and here. The photos are from one of our new cohort start-ups – Splento!
