On Thursday, Oct. 3rd, Greater Seattle Partners will host ten London-based technology companies at a networking reception in downtown Seattle.
The delegation is part of an international business tech mission organized by Go to Grow, the Mayor of London’s International Business Program. The aim of the event is to support British technology companies’ expansion into US markets by connecting them with regional stakeholders and deepening their understanding of the greater Seattle market. The companies in attendance focus their products and services towards large organizations and span various sectors of the technology industry, including AI, educational tech, and financial tech.
According to figures by Tech Nation, the UK tech market has overtaken US companies in foreign investment per capita, attracting $6.7 billion dollars in investment in the first seven months 2019. Over half of those investments came from backers in the US and Asia.
