OpenCo today announced that it will bring its 'festival of innovation' to London for the first time this summer, giving Londoners a unique opportunity to see and hear from some of the city's most open, dynamic and innovative businesses.
Love Home Swap will be taking part in the festival alongside companies such as Spotify, YouTube and London Business School (LBS) as they all open their doors to the general public for 45 minutes so people can get behind the business and learn their story.
Backed by the major of London, Boris Johnson says, 'One of London's key economic success stories has been the incredible growth of high tech and digital industries, notably within the dynamic Tech City cluster. The continued prosperity of this innovative industry is a vital component of my plan to deliver jobs and growth for London. Throwing open the doors of these enterprises is a great way for enterprises big and small to foster collaboration and build links with their communities. OpenCo is a great concept and I hope it will be a huge success.'
Backed by the Mayor of London, London & Partners - London's official promotional organisation and Tech City Investment Organisation (TCIO), OpenCo London will take place on June 7th across the capital and will run in partnership with Le Web 2013 to create a week of openness and an economy of sharing within the capital.
Whether it's new start us or well established global firms, the festival is free to everyone, the only condition being that they embrace the concept of openness fully: open collaboration, open communication, open community, open company and open doors.
'There's no better way to learn about innovation than up close and personal in its native habitat - and that's what OpenCo London is all about. We want to give people the opportunity to hear from some of the most talented business minds out there and see some of the city's most dynamic work environments.' - OpenCo Founder, John Battelle.
