If you’ve got a great idea to use the internet for good or evil Internet Week Europe is for you. Featuring panel events, workshops, incubator sessions with investors and lots of free start up advice be sure to get along to some of these events.

Now in its third year, Internet Week Europe returns to London for a European-minded event with a distinctly London twist, with the festival spanning from East London’s ‘Silicon Roundabout’ through to HQ of tech powerhouses like YouTube, to cultural institutions like the V&A.

Our continent’s flourishing creative communities will descend on the capital for a celebration of the wild and wondrous web: From five-a-side football tournaments with a twist, to blasting virtual reality aliens out the sky in Hoxton, to a chance to nose around the fabled Google HQ, there’s an event during this digital festival to celebrate every corner of the internet.
