NewCo turns the business conference model inside out. Festival participants pick the companies they want to explore. Then, they tour London, meeting founders and senior leadership inside their home office. Enjoy unscripted, insightful conversations and learn first-hand about how the London’s best-and-brightest drive purposeful transformation in their communities.

The London event will take place on April 21st. There is no charge to be a NewCo – it’s an honour to be selected. The festival is a dynamic series of one-hour sessions inside scores of the area’s best-and-brightest companies across London.

During a NewCo festival, each company opens its doors during one time slot, providing festival attendees with an intimate experience of its workplace, culture, and mission. At any given time during the day, 5 to 10 companies open their doors, and hundreds of attendees chose between them, creating their own schedule of companies to visit throughout the day. Each attendee’s schedule is unique – and NewCo’s staff and platform handle all the logistics.
