Leeds Tech Ecosystem Social: Networking to Thrive

Hosted by KPMG

KPMG Leeds are delighted to be hosting a networking event as part of the Leeds Digital Festival 2023 programme where we will provide light refreshments as well as a couple of guest speakers, including Bobby Thandi, who will discuss what being based out of the Leeds tech ecosystem has meant for him and his journey as an entrepreneur. KPMG will also provide an overview of what they are seeing in the market from new technologies to raising funds and selling businesses in this part of the world.

This event is for founders, entrepreneurs, CEOs and anyone else who considers themselves a key part of the tech ecosystem in our city. It will be an opportunity to discuss what is great, and perhaps what we need to work on, to make our community of entrepreneurs and innovators even stronger.

Come along, enjoy a drink and use this as an opportunity to catch up with old connections and make new ones.

We can’t wait to see you there!

Bobby Thandi:

Bobby is the Founder and CEO at XR Games; a multi award-winning virtual reality (VR) game development studio with over 100 members of staff. XR Games makes games that provide 3D virtual experiences for players to navigate, explore, and have fun in.

The studio works closely with Sony Pictures to bring movie licences to life in VR, and works with the world’s largest publishers and hardware manufacturers such as Meta, PlayStation and Microsoft.

Since 2021 XR Games has been rapidly scaling off the back of the hit game ‘Zombieland: Headshot Fever’; and in under two years it’s gone from 20 members of staff to more than 100 – with this expected to increase by a further 50% by 2024.
