The UKTI is offering some great opportunities for some sassy UK mobile cloud start-ups to get some flowers in their hair or more excitingly meet with leading Cloud lights such as VMware and Salesforce before MWC next year. Full info below.

UKTI Cloud Mission: 24 – 28 October 2011 San Francisco

Following the success of last year’s mission, UK Trade & Investment is organising a second Cloud Mission to Silicon Valley. The Cloud landscape is becoming clearer, the PaaS market continues to expand, hybrid Clouds are a reality, and enterprises and governments are planning to adopt Cloud services beyond Dev & Test and for a range of their business functions. The US market is looking for further Cloud technologies, products and services to drive adoption.

We are currently recruiting CEOs of cutting edge companies whose software deliverables might include:

-Compliance, security, reliability, or privacy benefits which address business concerns around Cloud adoption
-Cloud enabling features for scaling, performance, virtualisation, storage, or middleware
-Real cost reductions for business users of private or hybrid Cloud architecture
-Analytics of Real-time / Big Data across the Cloud

Or, is your technology part of the Cloud that powers smartphones and tablets, mobile and collaborative working?

Join UKTI’s 4 day agenda, including meetings with a selection of the following major vendors: Salesforce, Citrix, VMware, HP, IBM, plus local incubators, business environment advisers, strategists and peer companies.  Mission participants will have the opportunity to attend FailCon (www.thefailcon.com) on Monday the 24th at a special UKTI 20% discounted rate.

Places are limited for the mission, register your company today and find out more about this fantastic opportunity –HERE.  The link will take you to the EventBrite website where you will have 90 minutes to complete your application.

Participation in the mission will require commissioning a £888
Overseas Market Introduction Service (OMIS) through UK Trade & Investment. This service provides for overall mission programme and outlined activities. Delegates are responsible for covering the cost of their own transportation and accommodation.
