Our Investor Summit brings together firstminute investors, portfolio founders, partners from the top US and European multi-stage funds, and friends who are all bright lights in the tech community and share a deep commitment to nurturing this entrepreneurship ecosystem.

With a well articulated day of content and a range of side events the summit is able to bring the firstminute capital network together and showcase the talented founders we are backing. Each year the summit and the community have grown and come together in London to create an annual celebration of the firstminute world.
