The Telegraph:

Thirty technology experts, led by the ebullient Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn and serial investor with stakes in the likes of Facebook and Zynga, are visiting Downing Street, London’s ‘Silicon Roundabout’, and universities across the country to encourage the next wave of British dotcom entrepreneurs.

Hoffman thinks the UK is ‘on its way’ and made some good progress – especially around ‘Silicon Roundabout’ in East London. However, he wants to make ‘entrepreneurship’ part of the career options on offer in schools and universities.

“Entrepreneurship and innovation is how we change the world,” Hoffman said. “With ‘Silicon Valley comes to the UK’, we are trying to share to how these interesting companies and products [such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Google, Zynga], came into being and distribute this knowledge to the UK. We will all be better off for it.”
