  • get insights from Kingsley Napley’s top ranked immigration team about changes to the visa system;

  • network with other ambitious entrepreneurs who have a passion for reforming the visa system.

Opening speakers:

It was listed as the number one technology growth company in the UK by the Financial Times and they employ over 70 people in the UK. “The experience of ‘starting from zero’, realising you can get your own act together and build up a life around you is one that translates very strongly to entrepreneurship. It builds confidence, resilience and resourcefulness which are all key to any entrepreneur.”

  • Dr Miguel Martinez, Co-Founder of Signal AI, is the Spanish-born co-founder and Chief Data Scientist of Signal AI, a fast-growing UK company that analyses, in real-time, millions of news articles per day in order to improve the quality of business intelligence and decision making across organisations. “We are basically training the best people in the world, paying for part of their PhD with taxpayer’s money and then telling them they have to leave the country the moment they finish.”
