Brexit: How UK/European Tech Companies Are Coping

Mar 11, 2017

5:00pm – 6:00pm CT

Brexit will have a huge impact on startups, privacy, telecoms, and all areas of technology. This session explores the changes that tech companies in Europe have already experienced and will continue to experience as well as how they are coping with the changes. The panel brings perspective from a private messaging app based in Germany with a huge stake in the British market, a robotics company who recently decided to establish business headquarters in London, an established location data technology company that has been based in London since 2004, and a website that connects digital nomads with employers across the globe who want to borrow their skills for a while. These three will answer questions and discuss their experience with the referendum thus far and how it will continue to evolve.
