The 2012 conference theme was Mobile startups - making the UK the next Silicon Valley (funding, investment, advice) - watch this space for details of the 2013 conference.
Many of us have been working with mobile data technologies for a decade, and finally the Mobile revolution is truly here.
Venture Capitalists like Fred Wilson now advocate a 'Mobile first' strategy.
A plethora of mobile innovation is upon us with many mobile technologies like location, mobile payments and mobile apps becoming mainstream; more significantly, a commercial ecosystem is developing for mobile apps. Not only are we prepared to pay for apps - but an investment ecosystem is developing around mobile apps.
We hope that the ForumOxford Conference will act as a catalyst to take your ideas to the next level.
Five reasons to attend the ForumOxford Conference:
- Learn how to take your ideas from concept to execution.
- Network opportunities across the ForumOxford ecosystem - technologists, operators, investment experts.
- Learn about new funding models (Crowdfunding).
- Understand how start-up accounting is different.
- Become a part of the ForumOxford ecosystem.

The event is designed with ample Q&A time and opportunities for further discussions of the conference topics during breaks, over lunch and at the early evening drinks reception.
