Silicon Valley Comes to London
19 January 2012
"UCL Enterprise Society has WON the SVc2UK best-uni-event competition with an aviation-themed evening alluding to Reid Hoffman's quotation, "Jump Off a cliff and assemble a plane on the way down".
Over 200 delegates were welcomed by air hostesses and wowed by inspirational speakers like Daniel Hulme of Satalia, Rob Fitzpatrick of The Start-up Toolkit and Dan Sodergren of the Marketing Man. The experience included footage from UCL student entrepreneur pitches-in an actual elevator, a t-shirt design competition, speed-dating, food from UCL catering start-ups and a multi-sensory art exhibition from young start-up Physical Pixels."
Over 20 universities competed including oxford, cambridge and imperial. The prize is a trip to California for one person on the team.
