Nettoken founders: Charlotte Slingsby and Simonetta d’Ottaviano
Back in 2019, we had the fantastic opportunity to speak to Simonetta d’Ottaviano, co-founder of Nettoken and get her perspective on women in tech as well as the general tech eco-system in the UK. We have caught up with Simonetta to check what has happened in the last two years and how has Nettoken flourished.
We went back to Canary Wharf to check on London’s second financial centre and what benefits from the extension of the London Underground via the new Elizabeth Line have been brought there.
This week we revisit Silicon Roundabout to check on the tech hub in London’s East End. For those who are not familiar with it, Silicon Roundabout is nestled between the financial district to its South and Shoreditch, to its East - a world-renowned creative hub for art, tech, and advertising. This positioning is one of many factors contributing to its irresistible appeal, both for big corporates and the countless start-ups that continue to sprout up in the area.
In stark contrast to the West End, Shoreditch has a unique vibe and energy of London’s East End. It’s a creative and technology hub of London as well as home to an eclectic – and often eccentric – array of attractions, including street art, unique shops; and of course, artisan coffee.
