Meet our Conference Speakers - George Freeman MP

George will be speaking at our Annual Conference on 16 May in Cambridge on how the pace of growth in frontier technologies, from AI, Agritech & BioEngineering to Green Hydrogen and Quantum is opening up big new investment opportunities for the East of England.

Elected to Parliament in 2010 after a 15yr career in biotechnology venture capital funding & financing high growth UK businesses, George has served on the Government front bench in a number of key Science & Technology Ministerial roles under 4 Prime Ministers over the last 14 years: as first UK Minister for Life Science, first Minister for Decarbonisation & Digitalisation of Transport & Minister of State for Science & Technology shaping the UK’s programs for Quantum, EngBio, Fusion & Space.

A longstanding advocate of the Eastern Innovation Economy and stronger powers & freedoms for UK clusters to raise private investment through Investment Bonds and Development Corporations, George works with high growth companies, investors and clusters around the UK.
