DETAILS: The full impact of the recent Brexit vote on the United Kingdom's economy remains unseen. At the same time, many are arguing that the country's European Union membership was an important facet in the growth of its burgeoning startup scene. These opinions point to factors such as the freedom of movement, the ability of tech companies to scale without administrative hassle and access to the digital market. Regardless, business leaders are beginning to mull over a whole new set of possibilities in planning for a still uncertain future.
During this event hosted by Yborder, Brynne Herbert, founder and CEO of MOVE Guides, will participate in a panel discussion on the state of the UK tech scene post-Brexit. Moderated by Mike Butcher, editor-at-large for TechCrunch Europe, Herbert will join Alain Falys, co-founder and CEO at Yoyo Wallet; Kristjan Lepik from Teleport; and Simon La Fosse from London Tech. Throughout the discussion, Herbert and the others will consider different aspects of the Brexit as it relates to the tech community and share case studies of companies already feeling the impact of the vote. The panel will also spotlight the other locations where people are going, the costs associated with relocation and the reaction of the recruitment market so far.
