White City - the new Silicon Valley?
Where will the next important tech and creative hub be in London and what are the essential ingredients that will make it last for years to come?
The new partnership of Hammersmith and Fulham Council with Imperial College London - Upstream - which is moving to create the next leading destination for the tech and creative industries, will be featured at our next Future Cities Forum on 3rd July at White City Place, London.
Prema Gurunathan is Joint MD of Upstream and her role is to help transform White City into a thriving innovation district. With her Partner MD Jenni Young, she is responsible for connecting and supporting businesses (start-ups, scale-ups and corporates) with a focus on science, tech and creative sectors.
She spent many years as a lobbyist, mainly for the aerospace and defence industry. She has worked for three start-ups and currently works for Ginibee, which uses machine learning to match professionals and create full-time jobshares.
Our forum ' Intelligent Cities' will have the London Mayor's Chief Digital Officer, Theo Blackwell giving our keynote speech.
