Rohan Silva is perhaps the consummate insider. As a special advisor to the UK Prime Minister his office in 10 Downing Street was the ultimate insider’s address. When he left he was snapped up by Index Ventures, arguably Europe’s leading VC firm, as Entrepreneur-In-Residence, and is now one of two co-founders of Second Home, one of London’s most talked-about shared workplaces, breathlessly described by one blog as “The Coolest Start-up Office In London.” And to cap it all he is a Fellow of the UK’s Royal Society of the Arts.
Silva, a scheduled speaker at DLD 2016, is credited with driving some of the UK government’s most digital-friendly policies, including tax breaks for investors, the Tech City initiative and the world-leading Government Digital Service, now being copied by the Obama administration. GDS’s aim is the digital transformation of government; it has been successful in digitizing, at low cost, numerous bureaucratic processes, as well as opening up the bidding for IT contracts. According to a 2015 government report, GDS directly accounted for £599 million of savings.
