Then, we visit one of London's best startup communities, to learn the startup process, and how entrepreneurs are solving big problems, creating new business models and launching innovative companies in areas from fintech, to blockchain, to artificial intelligence, all within startup communities. Plus discover what investors look for when funding startups and why, and how to pitch your startup for venture capital and accelerators.

Finally, we'll explore one of the best locations in Europe for innovation and the design thinking behind products that have changed the world. From brands like Apple, Google and Facebook to the future of revolutionary technologies like augmented reality, smart cities apps, fashion tech, and 3D printing.
