Keynote Speaker:
Nelson Sivalingam is a serial entrepreneur and award-winning filmmaker, born in London to Sri Lankan Tamil parents who migrated to the UK fleeing the Civil War. Not long after graduating, he founded the video tech startup, One Minute City and since then it has been awarded O2 Smarta Business of the Year and voted top 100 startup in the UK. The video tech company later licensed its technology to the largest reservation platform in Europe. In 2016, Nelson co-founded and currently is the CEO at the educational technology company HowNow, disrupting the way in which digital learning is delivered and knowledge is monetised. The innovative platform raised a seven-figure investment from Fuel Ventures which includes Mark Pearson (MyVoucherCodes) and tennis superstar Andy Murray.

Nelson has been a speaker at Google Campus, an Ambassador for Startup Britain and a Guest Lecturer on Entrepreneurship. He has been recognised by Virgin Media Business as one of the top 30 young innovative founders in the country as well as one of the top Asian Stars in Tech by KPMG. He is a thought-leader on Startups and Tech contributing to publications such The Guardian, The Telegraph and Startups.co.uk, and recently he was featured in Bloomberg’s documentary on Entrepreneurial Mindset.
