Tech Mission to the UK


The UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT), British Airways, and The Pittsburgh Technology Council are proud to announce a mission trip to the UK on October 6 – 11, 2019.

Deadline to apply:

This mission will offer representatives from Pittsburgh-area headquartered tech scale-ups the opportunity to explore the UK’s thriving tech ecosystem via a 5-day program.

The mission will be designed to help companies understand the UK & European markets, support their international growth plans, and develop their global networks and contacts. The program will include visits to the UK’s top tech hubs, including London, Bristol, Manchester, and Cardiff, culminating in a special day with a team from British Airways’ Hangar 51, the tech accelerator of IAG, British Airways’ parent company. More details will be announced as soon as the agenda has been confirmed. 

Previous missions, organized by the UK’s Department of Trade (DIT), have seen companies learn how to set up an office in the UK, visit corporate accelerators, network with the UK offices of US companies, discover university partnership opportunities, meet with UK tech ecosystem influencers, and more.
