28th March – London – FundamentalVR, a fast growing Holographic, Haptic and Virtual surgery simulation company, is today with London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s team on a trade mission to Europe. The initiative, led by the Mayor’s International Business Programme and London & Partners, is designed to help high-growth B2B tech companies identify partnerships and to explore business opportunities in Europe and show that London is still very much open for business.
Deputy Mayor for Business, Rajesh Agrawal, said: “I am delighted that Fundamental VR is joining me in Berlin as we showcase some of the most innovative and entrepreneurial businesses London has to offer.
“Our great city has a long and proud history of trading and doing business with our friends overseas and that will never change. The Mayor and I look forward to working with team at Fundamental VR, to build new relationships, attract investment and show the entire continent that London is Open and the best city in the world to do business with.”
As part of the 3 day mission timed to coincide with the triggering of article 50 formerly commencing the Brexit negotiations, FundamentalVR and other selected organisations will be given the opportunity to connect with senior-level tech executives at one-to-one meetings, roundtables and networking events, as well as with international investors at investor pitching events in Berlin.
Fundamental was one of a small number of fast growth tech companies in Life Science invited to join the The Mayor’s International Business Programme. The 12-month programme is designed to support high-growth businesses from London’s technology, life sciences and urban sectors achieve their growth ambitions through trade missions, a bespoke mentoring scheme and expert advice and workshops.
Chris Scattergood, co-founder of Fundamental said: “The support offered by The Mayor’s International Business Programme has been invaluable as Fundamental continues to be recognised as market leaders for mixed reality training simulations featuring our ground breaking FeelReal VR haptic touch, and I’m delighted to now be joining the mission to Berlin as Britain formerly starts the Brexit process at this historical period in British Business history. Fundamental has extremely ambitious plans for growth in Europe and America and this trip will provide a unique opportunity to continue to collaborate and build European relationships ”
