Campaign

Seven Hills has worked with Russ Shaw, the founder of Tech London Advocates, since its inception in 2013.

In that time, Russ Shaw has become one of the most vocal and respected commentators in London’s tech sector.

Across a series of thought-leadership reports and bi-annual events for 800 attendees at Here East in the Olympic Park, Tech London Advocates has campaigned for some of the biggest issues and problems facing London tech – from diversity and inclusion to infrastructure and connectivity, from access to funding to visa legislation.

Tech London Advocates has taken Seven Hills around the world, banging the drum for London as a tech powerhouse in Bangalore, Singapore, San Francisco, Madrid, Bogotá and Toyko.

As a founding partner for London Tech Week, Tech London Advocates is prominent in every iteration of the largest tech festival in Europe.

In 2019, Global Tech Advocates – the international brand – hosted the first ever GTA Festival in Shanghai, bringing one of the largest private sector tech delegations to the world’s fastest growing tech ecosystem for a week of events, tours and meetings.

The first GTA Festival, took place in China in October 2019 to celebrate international collaboration in tech and the launch of GTA’s first global tech hub.

The latest TLA report, London’s Tech Investment Landscape, outlined the results of an Advocate survey on Brexit, its effect on London tech and asked business and investment leaders about how the capital maintains its position as an international tech superpower.
