The WeAreTechWomen, Skills for Growth Conference 2017 will be hosted at Europe’s largest Tech Innovation Centre, Plexal at Here East, Stratford, E14

The WeAreTechWomen Conference 2017 will be hosted at Plexal: the recently-launched tech innovation centre at Here East in Stratford.

Bringing together tech startups, scaleups and corporate innovation teams, Plexal has been designed to act as a mini city to encourage people to collaborate, socialise and, when needed, have quiet space to work alone or in small groups.

It comes complete with a Makers’ Yard for innovators to work on prototypes, a high street and town square that encourage serendipitous connections to be created and a dedicated events space that hosts conferences and meetups. Members include the Stemettes, whose co-founder Anne-Marie Imafidon is speaking at the conference.

Located within the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Plexal is near an array of restaurants and bars at Canalside and boasts neighbours such as Loughborough University.
