“With SOH we are shaking up the recruitment process by opening the vibrant startup community we have in London for new people to discover it. It will be a great opportunity for those interested in the tech scene to get a closer look on how these exciting companies work, giving them a chance to network with founders and learn more about the ecosystem.”

Charlotte Martin, Project Director at Startup Open House, added:

“Since our first edition in Montreal in 2013, Startup Open House has been thriving, now unlocking the doors of startups in 7 cities across Canada. From the start, our mission has been to shine light on the startup community and to spread the startup culture beyond its borders. Letting people in, directly into their workplace is a tremendous opportunity for startups to connect with talents in a very genuine way and to get real about the passion and grit it takes to be an entrepreneur. London being the major tech hub it is, it only makes sense for us to start our international expansion here with Jobbio.”

Ben Aronsten, Chief Marketing Officer at Seedrs, said:

“London has long been home to some the best tech talent in the world. Events such as London Tech Week enable us to showcase this with the world watching, so we’re delighted to be taking part in the Startup Open House event. Seedrs’ extensive portfolio helps form the beating heart of London’s tech scene and it’s a great opportunity to open the doors to our alumni under one roof.”
