Greetings, everyone! I am Akansha Dimri, the Founder and Editor of Tech Funding News (TFN), the pioneering tech media outlet based in London, first time ever founded by a brown female in the UK. I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to our readers for the incredible support and love you have shown to our brand over the past 1.5 years. Since our launch, we have been sharing exceptional stories about the tech industry, featuring early-growth stage startups, scaleups, and unicorns worldwide. It is remarkable what we have accomplished with our small team. We have expanded to a team of four members, along with a dedicated group of freelancers. Additionally, we are fortunate to have the support of the Allies Group, who assist us with technical aspects. On the social front, we are proud to have a strong following of over 40,000+ loyal supporters.
Continuing our mission to bring more inspiring and diverse stories to our platform, we are thrilled to introduce ‘TechTalks with TFN,’ a series of panel discussions that will take place every three months.
Our inaugural panel discussion is happening tomorrow and will delve into the topic of “How Diverse is London Tech? Challenges, Opportunities, and the Future in Tech.” This session promises to be insightful and thought-provoking. Following the discussion, we will have a networking session with drinks at the esteemed Homegrown Club in London, a private members club for scaling entrepreneurs and investors (who are also our location and drink sponsors’ for the event). Further, we also have another big sponsor for the event – the sustainable and eco-friendly wine brand – Seachange Wine: an eco-friendly, award-winning wine supporting ocean conservation. It focuses on innovative packaging, and donations to marine charities. Making a big impact through small changes.
