Tech Talks

Here at VeLabs we are proud of our extensive offering of reciprocal tech talks; taking place in London, Bilbao and Cluj, the variety of talks are given by specialists in their area allowing us to share a vast range of knowledge with you.

The aim of these talks is for us to reach out to other professionals in the industry and share our knowledge with them in return for a presentation of a similar nature; giving both parties a mutually beneficial insight into each other’s experience in the industry and different challenges they have faced.
