We had a blast bringing the seventeenth instalment of Silicon Milkroundabout to the Old Truman Brewery on 27-28 April 2019. Many thanks to the more than 3,000 of you who joined us, chatted to some innovative tech companies, grabbed a free coffee or beer, networked with some talented like-minded tech folk (then challenged them at street fighter), tried the best falafel in London courtesy of Imad’s Syrian Kitchen, were inspired by the speakers at our opening talks, and hopefully got some great leads on some exciting job opportunities!

Siliconmilkroundabout is known by its attendees as a casual and informal process. We fill an old brewery in Shoreditch with free coffee & beer, art installations, live music and London’s favourite food vendors.
