It was great to see the Ufi Zone so busy at the MOBILIZE: LDN Digital Careers Show. Held on 23 February in the Roundhouse in North London, this was primarily a platform for employers to spot emerging digital talent; and help young people to understand the full range of career opportunities open to them in the digital world.
The presence of such a lively and vibrant audience of young people, educators and employers made enabled Ufi to provide an opportunity for eight emerging tech businesses to showcase their products, test them with young adults and talk to prospective customers. The business were delighted with the response they received and very grateful for the chance to participate.
In the early evening, we hosted a business networking event on our stand. Over 40 tech business leaders joined us to hear more about Ufi and the 2016 Voctech Challenge Fund, learn how one business has used its 2015 Voctech funding to develop new products for adult learning markets and about the support offered by Wayra UK, Telefonica's digital technology accelerator.
MOBILIZE: LDN will run a further 4 events during 2016. Watch the Ufi website for further news.
