Attend London Tech Week | Call for applications

TechInSA is offering South Australian companies the opportunity to apply for support to attend London Tech Week (LTW) in 2018.

In 2017, Startup Catalyst ran a very successfully curated mission to LTW which included supported participants from Victoria and NSW.

TechInSA is planning to support the participation of a limited number of South Australian companies in the LTW 2018 mission. Successful applicants will be awarded a TechInSA grant for one representative from each company to attend LTW 2018 as participants in the Startup Catalyst Mission. The LTW 2018 Startup Catalyst Mission is from 10-16 June 2018 and is priced at $6000 + GST per person.

Startup Catalyst Mission inclusions

The Mission includes all the following for one representative from each company:

  • Oyster travel pass (tube+bus)
  • London Tech Week (300+ events)
