This week, WiredScore is joining the Mayor’s International Business Programme in a trade mission to Berlin. WiredScore is one of 15 successful London-based technology companies that make up the delegation led by the Deputy Mayor of London for Business, Rajesh Agrawal.
The trade mission will offer London businesses the opportunity to connect with senior-level executives during one-to-one meetings, roundtables and networking events, as well as with international investors and organisations supporting foreign innovators in Europe.
Commenting on WiredScore’s involvement, William Newton, EMEA Director, said “We are delighted to have been chosen to join the Mayor’s International Business Programme to Berlin. Technology and increasingly connectivity is a fundamental part of any business’s operations, and sound digital infrastructure is key to growth across all industries. The EU has already demonstrated itself as the global leader in 5G regulation and development.
We look forward to meeting with like minded businesses from across Europe to discuss ways in which the UK can ensure it remains at the forefront of connectivity and technology. Having recently expanded into Europe, we are also excited to explore new potential opportunities; Germany is a market that we believe is a natural fit to our business model with thriving real estate and technology sectors. It’s particularly exciting to come to Germany just weeks ahead of the first ever meeting of the G20 Digital Summit which is taking place in Düsseldorf. One of the UK’s post-Brexit challenges will be in ensuring that it can continue to align itself with the EU Commission’s regulations and remain at the forefront of technological development.”
As WiredScore continues pursuing its mission to bring greater understanding and transparency to commercial connectivity worldwide, the London Mayor’s office has been a keen advocate of the value of connectivity to businesses and its potential to make a city attractive.
At London Tech Week 2016, just weeks into his role as London Mayor, Sadiq Khan reaffirmed the Greater London Authority’s backing to Wired Certification stating how “[WiredScore’s] important work will continue to help connected buildings act as beacons of the capital’s already strong connectivity and enable other properties to benchmark and make the right investments to enable London’s businesses to continue to grow.”
