Benjamin is the former deputy CEO of TechCity UK; launched by Prime Minister David Cameron to build a thriving UK tech sector.
Having worked in technology and technology startups for eighteen years, Ben has held tech roles at a variety of organisations. Ben co-founded 3beards, an events company serving London’s tech, creative and entrepreneurial communities. The success of 3beards led to Ben being recruited to the role of Deputy CEO of TechCity, a government-backed organisation that was formed to foster the growth of the burgeoning tech hub around the Old Street area of East London. The role involved working closely with No10 and Ben helped to establish many of the core initiatives and policies that helped cement the world-leading reputation of the UK tech scene.
After his time with TechCity Ben returned to the private sector and co-founded a new software business. Ben exited Unicorn Hunt, a startup recruitment platform, in 2016 after selling it to a Canadian investment company.
