Entrepreneurs are the engine room of the UK economy – and the nation’s newest tech magazine will be hearing from some of the most tech-savvy among them on one of the main stages at IFB2016.

Young tycoons aspiring to become the next Mark Zuckerberg and more established business leaders will look at how tech can be the rocket fuel for growth on the global stage.

BusinessCloud editor Chris Maguire will chair proceedings and ask: where is business technology heading next?
