Silicon Abbey

Brightbolts were thrilled to attend the first Silicon Abbey networking event back at the end of March. The event organised by Torsten de Riese was part of the First Silicon Abbey festival. A weekend of events that included seminars led by expert speakers, networking events and a free hackday for local teenagers.

Silicon Abbey is a group of senior executives in media, tech and finance, entrepreneurs and others who are interested in building a digital future for St Albans.

In the next five years St Albans has an unrivalled opportunity as the London tech industry gravitates northwards with Google, Twitter and Facebook about to open large offices in the so-called ‘Kings Cross tech-cluster’, alongside the British Library, Guardian and the Crick Institute; all just a 20 minutes train journey from St Albans.

Here at Brightbolts we are very keen to make the most of this opportunity, so are firmly banging the Silicon Abbey drum. Please read more about the great work that Torsten and the Silicon Abbey team are doing on the Silicon Abbey website and follow them on twitter @Al1Tech.
