On 22 May 2019, we will host our second event in our WNCA with... series. After March's brilliant event with Rupert Harrison, we are pleased to announce that our next event will be with entrepreneur Rohan Silva, at Second Home Holland Park.
Rohan is currently the co-founder and co-CEO of Second Home, the socially responsible creative workspace business. Founded in East London, Second Home now has four locations in London, one in Lisbon, and will soon be opening more spaces in Lisbon and Los Angeles.
From 2010 to 2013, Rohan was Senior Policy Adviser to UK Prime Minister David Cameron, working on all areas of policy - including technology, innovation and enterprise. Previously, he served as Senior Policy Adviser for the 2010 General Election and Economic Adviser to the Shadow Chancellor George Osborne (2007-10).
In government, he was the brains behind a number of pioneering initiatives, including: Tech City in east London, which in two years grew the number of tech companies there from 200 to over 2000; the world's first Entrepreneur Visa; tax breaks for angel investment and entrepreneurship; opening up government procurement to SMEs; and commissioning the Hargreaves Review on Intellectual Property.
Rohan also writes a regular column in the Evening Standard and is a senior visiting fellow at LSE Cities.
We are super excited to have Rohan come and speak with us, and hope you'll be able to make it.
