Grand finale 2018
6:30 pm Wednesday 9th May - CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY ENGINEERING DEPT
Three competitions later, we're delighted to present this year's grand finale.
Our keynote will be delivered by Fitz alum and chair of the Cambridge Angels: Peter Cowley. Named 'Best angel investor in the world' at the World Business Angel Forum in 2017 and personality of The Invested Investor podcast, Peter's investment experience in deep technology startups (and his willingness to share it) is unrivalled.
Following him will be Stan Boland from FiveAI, whose Cambridge-based firm has raised £26.8M (including £12M from Transport for London themselves) to trial an autonomous taxi in London by 2019.
Finally, Matthew Bradley from Forward Partners, a pre-seed and seed investment firm 'supercharging' their startups will be talking about their unique approach to modern venture capital investment.
After the talks we'll announce the winners of our £10,000 startup competition and at 8pm move to LR4 for a poster session including all of the competition's entries with FREE FOOD AND WINE.
