Morning, all! Do you know that morning when you get up full of energy, especially cause you haven’t slept well, but your mind’s spinning with ideas and things you want to do? This is exactly what happened today. Well, to be honest, I’m a bit worried, as it’s Monday, but ..it’s fine, I’ll take it as it is.
Today I’m glad to introduce you to this first post of a monthly roundup of events where I want to put together the Best Startup Events in London, so conferences, workshops and events related to startups, innovation and tech stuff!
Normally I’m just doing secretly, during lunch breaks as you know, they’re going to be full quite soon.
But since now, to celebrate my summer as a freelancer, I’ll be sharing the list with you as “happiness is real when shared”. I met so many amazing people this summer that I really need to celebrate my coming back to London.
Well, as I want to build a new list every month, I’ll do a lot of research to look for the best non-bullshit startup events, but if you know them and you think they should be included, just reach out.
No more excuses of not knowing what to do..now you’ll know!
Hope you like my curated list of no-bullshit Startup events London October 2016
