Tech Desires

What makes a tech company attractive? And the lessons for today's startups from the UK's 80s home computer scene. Presented by Rory Cellan-Jones.

As Microsoft buys UK Artificial Intelligence firm SwiftKey, we ask leading venture capitalist Saul Klein what investors are looking for in a tech company. Plus we speak to Joyce Kim of Stellar on trying to slash the cost of money transfers in Nigeria. And Tom Lean, author of the new book "Electronic Dreams" tells us what today's startups can learn from the 1980s home computer revolution in the UK.

Presented by Rory Cellan-Jones, with guest Marieme Jamme, and Chris Baraniuk from the BBC Online tech desk. (Picture: NASDAQ Stock Exchange in New York, Credit: Getty Images).
