We're excited to represent the University of Reading in the Startup Grind global entrepreneurial community. Reading is part of the wider Thames Valley region, which has such a historic entrepreneurial and business ecosystem, being home to many corporations European HQs including Microsoft, Oracle, Pespico and Bayer to mention a few. In recent years, we have started to see the growth of the startup and scale-up ecosystem, with many of the regions clusters ranking highly in reports including the annual Tech Nation Report and DEMOS/PwC Good Growth for Cities Index. Startup Grind University of Reading is committed to building a thriving ecosystem on campus and connecting our students both locally and globally. We look forward to welcoming you to one of our events throughout at the year.
