Urbano Network is London’s leading pan-sector independent business network with over 5,000 Member & Associate Companies, ranging from boutique practices and SMEs, to corporates and PLCs. 

Formed in 2011 by a team who created their first business community in Shoreditch in 2002,  Urbano's calendar is a diverse mix of events, designed to bring together a range of companies from our different  Communities - Build, Create-Media, Finance, People, Host, Tech, and UWACTE (Urbano Women In Architecture, Construction, Technology and Engineering) - to share information and ideas, and develop connections to help each of us and our companies develop sustainable businesses.

As President Biden takes his oath of office on this day, we would like to use such an event to bring together different US and British companies to hear from someone at the sharp edge of future planning a city and to see what issues are shared with London. There will also be facilitated networking and plenty of chance to chat and connect.
