The San Francisco office of Penningtons Manches LLP co-hosted a reception in New York on Wednesday 6 December 2017 with the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) and TechHub. The event was part of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Summit, the DIT’s first international trade mission to New York, which brought together 10 of the UK’s leading AI scale-ups to offer them the opportunity to meet with renowned investors, fellow founders, thought leaders, and key ecosystem players to obtain the best exposure and insight into what it takes to innovate in the US.
Penningtons Manches is actively engaged with the DIT and is a full member of its UK Advisory Network which works to deliver high quality support for investors setting up in the UK and to UK companies doing business overseas. TechHub, which was originally founded in the UK as a global community for tech entrepreneurs and start-ups, has recently launched in New York, making it an ideal location to bring together UK and US entrepreneurs and investors.
Companies attending the AI Mission included action.ai, bibblio, BlueOptima, Echobox, Onfido, Rainbird, Recordsure, Relative Insight, StatusToday and WIREWAX.
