David Cameron and Boris Johnson launch Silicon Roundabout initiative at Urban Age Conference

6 December 2012

On 6 December, at the Urban Age Electric City conference, David Cameron and Boris Johnson launched their plans to transform London’s Old Street roundabout – also known as Silicon Roundabout – with the introduction of “the largest civic space in Europe – a place for start-up companies and the local community to come together and become the next generation of entrepreneurs”.

The £50m investment will create a destination to support start ups, provide classrooms to train entrepreneurs, help young people get the skills they need, and provide a focal point for Tech City.
