London Enterprise Tech Meetup (LNETM) fosters innovation in the London enterprise technology ecosystem through promoting emerging technology companies, supporting entrepreneurs and educating companies on how to work with enterprises.
Our aim is to create an environment where entrepreneurs, investors, and businesses can all network and learn from one another. Each monthly event is focused on bringing together top quality speakers on a global basis to discuss and debate the top issues impacting enterprise tech.

“LNETM is at the heart of the London Enterprise tech Ecosystem. As an investor I find it a valuable source of information about relevant themes driving the industry, and Ian’s stewardship of it has resulted in a unique value proposition that makes it the only meetup I regularly attend. ”

Our Next Event:
February LNETM – Uncomplex…
Thursday 22nd February 2024 – London Stock Exchange
Let’s face it; while it is easier than ever to start a business, it is harder than ever to build a business… Higher interest rates have put a premium on the cost of capital, enterprise customers are tightening budgets and profitability is back in fashion.
There is a school of thought that technology is hindering rather than helping, as we make life harder for ourselves by trying to engineer complex infrastructure environments that rely on nascent technologies.
Cloud providers and their developer advocates have popularised wasteful architectures. For instance, the CNCF has over 100 cloud projects that are all compensating for things that used to be easy. Now we spend our lives overcoming the 10X performance loss that all come with running everything distributed over complex network environments.
We should be concentrating our efforts on building technology for making our business win, not run. We were able to build amazing systems 10 years ago – or were we? Are things better or worse?? Come join the debate!
John O’Hara (former Founder of Taskize, Distinguished Engineer at JP Morgan Chase and creator of AMQP) has offered to give us a preview of his QCon London talk, which discusses simplifying how we do technology to allow CTOs focus more clearly on differentiating their businesses. He will then be joined to discuss the topic by an expert panel, including:
- Paula Kennedy (Co-Founder & COO, Syntasso)
- Will Venters (Associate Professor of Digital Innovation, London School of Economics)
- Speaker TBC
