If you are an Australian startup, investor, policy or change maker, then you simply must take a look at the European Market, and there is no better time to explore it than during their summer and London Tech Week with our epic mission.
This mission is not just visiting another startup mecca and touring the offices of the tech giants. This is about reprogramming minds, challenging opinions and drawing real insights that fundamentally shift the way our participants perceive, and respond to, the world around them. With London Tech Week as our backdrop, we’re bringing startups, scale ups and movers and shakers, thinkers and doers from across the Aussie innovation ecosystem to the UK to inspire and challenge them in equal measure.
If you are selling to the corporate sector, London is home to the headquarters of hundreds of global corporate giants, and is the fintech powerhouse of the world. If you are looking to raise funding and connect with investors, London has the highest investment rates in Europe. If you are looking to understand startup ecosystems, London is home to over 200 startup accelerators and tech hubs. And if you are looking to establish a presence in Europe, London Tech Week is the ideal time to get advice and support from our mission partners like UK DIT, London & Partners, Tech City UK, Trade & Investment Queensland, and many more. There is no better time to get boots on the ground in the UK.

Arrival and Welcome Briefing
The mission commences with a welcome briefing. Important on the ground information. Meet the group and Mission Leaders, hear important safety, security and logistics information.
We'll then head to an informal networking get together to meet the Aussies in a traditional British Pub, meet key contacts and the other Australian LTW delegations - then on to a group dinner with the cohort to get to know everyone!
London Tech Week
Your time at London Tech Week will be a combination of official events and meetings organised by Startup Catalyst plus an array of over 300 other events around London. Participants on the mission can choose their own schedule of events from these activities, and all participants also receive support from our UK partners to curate specific meetings to suit their individual needs.
The schedule of official mission events is built around the participants on the mission, and includes a group dinner with guests, a large Tech Australia reception event at Australia House, private meetings and tours with accelerators, and with corporate innovation labs, and many more.
*Please note: The proposed schedule is a work in progress and may be subject to change.
Free time for personal meetings
Today is intentionally left free of scheduled events for you to make the most of your time at London Tech Week. You are free to schedule your own meetings with investors or others you have met in your previous few days, or just schedule rest time after the intensity of a Startup Catalyst Mission!
