Informed Funding will host the event Funding Fair: funding for deep technology at Plexal, East London’s tech hub, on 8th November. The event will feature leaders in deep technologies, innovators, entrepreneurs and investors and aims to bridge the huge gap which exists between technology breakthroughs and the commercialised products or services that will support profitable businesses.

With workshops, panel discussions and lectures, the Funding Fair is an opportunity for innovators and financers alike to turn breakthrough technology into commercialised products or services. The agenda is wide-ranging and multifaceted, centring on themes including the state of UK cyber security, London’s FinTech scene and how to formulate a winning pitch.

The event’s host for the morning will be Jemima Kelly, a journalist at Financial Times Alphaville. Morning sessions will focus on identifying commercial potential and talent in deep tech. The afternoon host is Andy Davis, former editor of the Financial Times Weekend. He will introduce panel discussions on identifying investors in deep technology and how to deliver a winning pitch to secure funding. There will also be a roundtable discussion focusing on cyber security and funding in the UK Fintech industry.
