Biztech’s chairman, Fredi Nonyelu launched the new investment funding campaign at a breakfast gathering of the city’s business leaders this morning (Wednesday).
Mr Nonyelu (pictured) told delegates at the City Breakfast Club: “We want the Milton Keynes area to be spoken of in the same breath as London and Cambridge as a hub for new and fast-growing technology companies.
“To create a virtuous circle of innovation and growth, to become a hub for technology companies, we need to create the links between the innovators and the people with investment funds.
“When we have those links in place, we will attract the top people and grow even faster, attracting even more investment.”
The political environment is right at the moment for the investment and growth links to be put in place, he added.
“Now is the time to leverage this positivity towards technology-based growth and to raise our game. As a city and the area around it, the time is right for us to seize the day and make a sustainable legacy for the future of technology-based growth.”
The City Breakfast Club, the oldest breakfast meeting group in Milton Keynes, meets at 7:45am on the first Wednesday in each month at stadium:mk. Its attendees include some of the biggest companies in the city.
