Our story began in Shoreditch in 2011, launched by the then Prime Minister David Cameron, to support the East London tech cluster known as London Tech City — or Silicon Roundabout. Since then we’ve been on a journey, spreading our activities to cover other parts of the UK, and have set up Tech North to run programmes across the North of England. Last November, Prime Minister Theresa May and the Chancellor Philip Hammond announced the launch of Tech Nation, consolidating Tech City UK and Tech North’s impact.
Now as Tech Nation, we’re expanding our network of growth programmes, events, skills and data resources to reach all corners and clusters of the UK.
What we do continues to be shaped by your voices. We just finished a listening tour to meet representatives from the UK’s vibrant tech landscape and understand how best to shape our national network to meet your challenges.
