ISSUE 16 SEPTEMBER 2011

Dear LSR member, As other Tech events across Europe hear about us they are quite interested in collaborating hence we have discounted tickets for the GOTO Conference 2011 in Copenhagen & LeWeb’11 in Paris. We have also tied up with one of the biggest Startup meetup groups in Paris to organise trips from London & vice versa. This will help our own Startups present across the border & hopefully open up some cross border investments & collaborations. We are planning the first trip on 3rd Oct & the following one on the first week of Nov. Those interested in joining us 'Geeks on a Train' drop us a line.
