£50k up for grabs for tech entrepreneurs

Wikipedia co-founder on judging panel

IT start-ups have an opportunity to win £50,000 in funding at an event launched by technology entrepreneur Martin Warner, later this year.

In December, Warner, CEO and co-founder of Talkbiznow.com, will host the first Tech Entrepreneur Week in London, which will give start-ups a chance to meet some venture capital firms and get advice and guidance on their business ideas.

Entrepreneurs will also be able to enter a competition to win £50,000 in funding, which will be judged by a panel led by Wikipedia's co-founder Jimmy Wales.

All technology entrepreneurs in a whole range of areas, including consumer and commerce technology, internet, mobile operating systems and application development and enterprise technologies, are eligible to take part.

"Tech Entrepreneurs Week is designed to fuel London's emergence as the European centre of innovation and tech entrepreneurship. In addition to having the opportunity to secure backing from some of the world's biggest and most successful backers of tech start-ups, those companies attending the week will benefit from an unrivalled networking opportunity," Warner said.

More information on how to register for the event can be found here. The early bird registration fee per entrepreneur for one business or idea submission is £795 (normally £1,095).
