Anyone who has seen Birch speak will know he tells it like it is. His appearance at GeeknRolla is not to be missed.

This year’s GeeknRolla in London on April 20 will, in a word, be awesome. Grab a ticket!
We’ll be launching around 15 startups in front of a panel of around 18 judges. (The deadline to enter your startup to launch has now passed).
Startups can also purchase an affordable DemoPit to demo their products.
I’d strongly advise you get a ticket. Last year we more than sold out.
Btw, why “GeeknRolla” I hear you ask? Here’s why.
