TRANSFORM Start Up and Scale Up taking place this month


TRANSFORM Start Up & Scale Up is taking place from November 16th to 20th. This is the second event of the new monthly TRANSFORM Series, which kicked off with TRANSFORM Health in October 2020. I spoke with Pierangelo Rosati, one of the events coordinators, about the event, and how it hopes to access business opportunities.

TRANSFORM: Discussing the role of technology for start-up and scale-up companies 

We began by speaking about the significance of the event and how it hopes to make both a national and global impact:

“Rapidly changing technology landscapes have significant impacts on all organisations. This is particularly the case for start-up and scale-up companies as technology may allow them to scale fast and access business opportunities both nationally and internationally.

This event brings together academic and industry experts to discuss the role of technology for start-up and scale-up companies and how it can be leveraged to achieve success”.

In terms of opportunities and what attendees can expect, Pierangelo went into detail about the perspectives and experiences that await audience members:

“A lineup of speakers from both industry and academia, ensuring a range of perspectives that are to be shared during a mix of fireside chats and keynotes easily accessible on Zoom.

You will have the chance to ask questions directly and discuss your personal experiences on the topic at hand with industry experts”.
