Weather Safe Ltd, a start-up company based in the Harwell Space Cluster, was very honoured to be invited to a Reception for UK Technology Industry held at Buckingham Palace on Monday 9 June, 2014.
Organised and promoted by the Duke of York, the event was a gathering for entrepreneurs from across the country to celebrate technology success and innovation in UK.
Francesco Liucci, co-founder and Marketing and Sales Director at Weather Safe Ltd, represented the company at the reception.
Francesco said “Along with other guests, we were honoured to shake hands with Her Majesty, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke of Cambridge, the Duke of York and other members of the Royal Family.”
Francesco continued, “During the event, I was approached by the Duke of Edinburgh who was very interested in our vision and applications, and the technology that we have developed to help coffee growers in Rwanda. We were then welcomed into the Music Room, Blue Drawing Room and Picture Gallery where paintings by Caravaggio, Canaletto and Van Dyck among others, gave even more splendour to the Royal Residence. I believe all attending had a most amazing day to remember.”
