A major event hosted in the epicentre of London’s startup community in Tech City has attracted hundreds of technology enthusiasts from all over Europe.
‘Inspiration Centraal’ – the free event hosted by Dutch hosting company TransIP – has so far seen more than 3,500 technology enthusiasts attend to hear talks from some of London’s most successful startup entrepreneurs, including MindCandy founder Michael Acton-Smith and ‘gaming industry godfather’ Ian Livingstone.
Tech startup royalty aside, the event’s ‘schexy tech’ theme and its pole dancing robots – creations of the artist Giles Walker – have created a significant level of buzz and some controversy in London’s startup community.
“We chose Shoreditch and Tech City quite deliberately as our new home, as we are a fan of London’s growing stature as an international technology hub, but frankly our expectations have been exceeded by the level of engagement we’ve experienced from the startup community in this beautiful city,” said TransIP CEO Jeroen Hüpscher.
“We’ve been blown away by the reaction to our event, the level of attendance and the infectious enthusiasm for building a vibrant and successful startup ecosystem. There can be no doubt that London – and in particular East London – is the startup capital of Europe. We’re looking forward to helping London consolidate this status by continuing to give startups the technology infrastructure they need to realize their visions. This is the exciting bit for us as a provider.”
The robots will be pole dancing for the remaining four days of the event, along with presentations from leading figures in the technology industry. Renowned trendspotter and futurologist Magnus Lindkvist kicks off the event schedule this evening.
