U.K. Trade and Investment (UKTI) has posted a Youtube video featuring Canadian companies looking to expand their operations to Britain.
Flybits, a Mars Innovation spin-off company, was among three companies to be profiled:
Flybits is launching a corporate presence in East London’s Tech City, which is also known as the Silicon Roundabout.
The news was first announced during His Royal Highness Prince Charles‘ visit to Canada in May. The prince received a personal demonstration of Flybits’ mobile technology from Founder and CEO Hossein Rahnama during a visit to Ryerson University’s Digital Media Zone. Rahama, a professor at Ryerson, is also the DMZ’s research director.
Flybits has received considerable support from UKTI and will continue this collaboration as their European operations intensify.
The video is part of UKTI Canada’s Global Adventure contest. The organizers are seeking Canada’s most promising and innovative technologies companies to introduce those companies to London’s vibrant tech hub, Tech City, through a three-day tour.
The contest closes June 29, 2012.
