CIONet's: Digital Britain

Wednesday, 26 May 2021 -

​La Fosse are excited to be partnering with CIONet for Digital Britain – a flagship community event that will question how we might harness innovation to conquer new markets.

Post Brexit and COVID, and as we enter the digital era, the UK needs to make its mark once more on the world economic stage. As a nation, we need a vision that maintains our position within the world’s leading economies, many of whom will be dominated by digital giants and scale-ups.

We need to accelerate the development of our up-and-coming enterprises into truly global digital businesses that can compete with firms from China, Asia and the USA. Post Brexit, we now have the necessary freedoms of action to enable us to achieve such an ambitious goal.

Please join us Wednesday 26th May at 17:00 GMT by registering here.
