Global communications firm, Edelman, has today announced the extension of its strategic partnership with Founders Forum Group, a curated global community of the world’s leading digital and technology entrepreneurs and group of businesses supporting entrepreneurs at every stage of their journeys. 

Both companies have collaborated on co-branded content and event activity, as well as partnering to support Founders Forum Group’s tentpole industry event, Founders Forum Global, which will take place from 11-13 June, hosting many of the world’s most successful tech founders and game-changing CEOs, including hundreds of unicorn founders. 

The announcement comes as the UK celebrates London Tech Week, following Founders Forum Group’s acquisition of Tech Nation last year with the mission to scale the UK tech sector and maintain its position as a global tech hub. London Tech Week continues to grow as a platform for tech innovators across the UK, doubling in size with 30,000 expected to visit, up from 15,000 attendees in 2023. 

“Edelman works with some of the world’s most influential tech brands and has a firm grasp of the tech ecosystem, making them a natural partner for our flagship events, particularly this year when we’re bringing our Founders Forum Global event to a wider audience live via our broadcast stage. We’re delighted to continue our partnership bringing the best of both our worlds to the global technology sector,” 

- Carolyn Dawson, Founders Forum Group CEO. 

Through this partnership, the Founders Forum Group community of entrepreneurs, investors, CEOs, and government leaders will also gain insights from the 2024 Edelman Trust Barometer drawn from Edelman’s global Executive Positioning team and Centres of Excellence including AI, Web3 and Cybersecurity. 

“We’re excited to be continuing our partnership with Founders Forum Group at this pivotal moment for the technology industry. Our latest Trust Barometer shows us that trust in innovation, particularly the adoption and acceptance of AI, is under intense scrutiny. The vast community that Founders Forum Group represents has the potential to drive a new era of prosperity. We look forward to the opportunity of helping restore trust in the promise of the groundbreaking innovations they deliver,” 

- Ruth Warder, CEO, Edelman UK. 

Founders Forum Global’s broadcast stage will be streaming live on Bloomberg from 10:30am BST on Thursday 13 June, 2024 here.
