Tech Crunch Disrupt London: Innovative Apps, Machine Learning and sir Alex Ferguson

Every startup dreams of appearing on Tech Crunch posts and participating in their events. One of these events is Tech Crunch Disrupt London (7-8 December).

It’s a great opportunity to meet potential investors, partners and customers and it’s widely followed by entrepreneurs from all over the world.

People may think it’s just focused on young tech entrepreneurs who have developed an app. But people from all kind of industries  participate. For instance, one of the featured speakers was sir Alex Ferguson, former Manchester United manager. It was a really interesting keynote presentation about how to manage leadership and how to manage teamwork.

Several speakers of Tech Crunch Disrupt highlighted that startups may be created anywhere, i.e. ,  you don’t need to live in the US to start a profitable startup. In that sense Andy McLoughlin,  venture partner with SoftTech VC, pointed out:

“You should be where your customers are. You needn’t  be in Silicon Valley to succeed .”
