Helsinki! Are you ready to ruuummbblle?! The Tech Off: Eurobest Smackdown Special

It’s less than a week to go before we hit our northern cousins with what is our biggest outing yet for The Tech Off!

If you don’t already know, The Tech Off is our regular battle of creative technology ideas, which so far we have been holding in central London. To get a flavour of the event, visit the site and have a read of what happened at The Thriller In The Cellar and The Tech Off: Part Deux.

We’re taking The Tech Off outside London for the first time – to the great city of Helsinki, as part of the Eurobest festival of creativity, innovation and ideas.

It’s on Tuesday 2nd December, 11.45am in Helsinki Hall. If you get the chance to come you DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS!!!

We have 3 heavyweight contenders:

Martyn “Mad Dog” Ware:
founder of seminal electronic music bands The Human League & Heaven 17, and sonic pioneers Illustrious Company

Renate “The Cyborg” Nyborg:
founder & CEO of Pleo, a mobile consulting and design studio in East London. She was Global Director of Mobile for Edelman – the world’s largest communications agency

David “Badass” Bailey:
Creative Director User Experience & Design for the BBC, he ran agency Kiosk, and is a Designer’s Republic alumni

The Tech Off Helsinki - Tues 2nd Dec - Helsinki Hall 11.45am

The event is fast and furious – speakers only have 5 minutes to wow the crowd – and the winner will get their hands on the coveted Tech Off Winners Belt. We have made a special Eurobest belt – which the winner will get to keep! (usually the winner brings their belt back to hand over to the next winner).


We’ve even got some funky foam fingers for the crowd to wave in appreciation!


We’ll be in touch with a write up of the event – one thing is for sure – it could get ugly!
