Converge UK is a series of events to foster communication, collaboration and creation at the intersection of Design, Business & Technology.
We are running our 2nd event at Innovation Warehouse Wednesday October 3rd Please get your tickets here.
The concept was co-founded by a diverse group of London professionals working in lot’s of different disciplines with a common interest in entrepreneurship including myself, Peter Thomson, Tim McCready, David Mclaire, Sallie Bale, and Dan George.
We had all been going to loads of events related to our industry but had observed that all too often London meetups, the people you met and thinking can be siloed in an echo chamber of agreement with people working in the same discipline holding similar views. Converge UK is about bringing together different disciplines to discuss and prompt creative abrasion, where people may disagree and have totally curve-ball different ideas. At the overlap between disciplines is where the magic and meaningful occurs.
The format is to have a speaker from each discipline, Q&A, audience group exercises sessions followed by open networking over drinks and food provided.
Speakers emphasise lessons from the trenches in real startups, the good the bad and the ugly. The project is non-profit and open-source, we are looking for feedback and ideas on the format and are always looking for volunteers if you want to be involved as well as speakers to speak to a challenge, triumph, learning from each camp Design, Business, Technology. Please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
Lastly me giving a short overview of the concept and personally inviting you to come along:
