Silicon Valley Comes to Oxford returned to Saïd Business School on 17-18 May 2015. 

SVCO 2015 provided an opportunity to hear prominent entrepreneurs, innovators and investors discuss and debate key issues in entrepreneurship and innovation. The interactive sessions focused on the benefits and challenges of starting and scaling high-growth companies as well as offering a unique insight into an entrepreneurs world – the issues and topics they are really passionate about, their failures as well as hard won successes and how it really is possible to change the rules of the game.  

SVCO 2015 also explored the critical and transformative subtopic of ‘Augmented Humanity’ - the next stage of our relationship with technology as augmented devices revolutionise our lives, enhancing our senses, improving our productivity and even changing the face of medical technology and healthcare. 

Key Themes

Very grateful to @OxfordSBS for inviting me back to Oxford for #SVCO! Wearing my loudest sports jacket in an attempt to blend in @plibin 

 What do I have to talk about w/ Mother Teresa & @plibin? Turns out, plenty. Outcomes matter, motives don't. #SVCO @leila_c 

Loved Morten's presentation "It's so easy, I think you are nearly obliged to try". Couldn't agree more. @ML #SVCO @AlexFarrell_MD
