Tech Nation Visa Meetup – August 2018

As you know, at the Tech Nation Visa Holders community we have regular meet-ups. We attend them and the results of these meetings stay in our memory and phones (as photos and selfies :)). So I decide to put my memories over here. Why not to keep the all #TechNationVisa stuff in one place?

Our last meet-up was on Thursday, August 30, and we visited an interesting and tech-minded place – Entrepreneur First accelerator. This is one of the brightest UK digital accelerators. Its London-based office is located in the heart of Bermondsey. What I like in this accelerator – they are not seeking out successful companies and incorporated almost-unicorns. They are open for  individuals with concepts and interesting ideas. By the way, since last July – being accepted to Entrepreneur First is a reason to apply for Fast Track option in Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa.

And to finish my brief report on our last meeting, I must answer the hottest question – what had we got during this meeting?

Well, lots of joy and conversations with smart people, discussion about the general policy of the Governmental funding of tech projects, future events of Tech Nation and as usual – welcoming new members of our Alumni Club.

So if you are a Exceptional Talent Visa Holder and still do not go to our regular community events – join us. Or if your email is still not on the list in our mail subscription – let me know and I will do my best to help you with putting it there.

Finally, this is my selfie from the meeting and now I am waiting for the next one to make notes about it here 🙂
