We believe the UK is the best place to start and grow a digital business.

Our mission is to accelerate the growth of London and the UK’s digital economy. We focus on areas like digital skills, smart capital investment, infrastructure, international development and leadership.

We started life in Shoreditch in 2010, launched by the UK Prime Minister David Cameron to support the East London tech cluster known as London Tech City or Silicon Roundabout. We have since grown our support to Greater London, Manchester and other major cities around the UK.

We do this in three ways:

Targeted programmes: that fill market gaps across the whole lifecycle of digital businesses from our Digital Business Academy to Future Fifty.

Engaging policing convening: providing an agile and responsive feedback loop to government to help shape the right policies via roundtables, surveys, white papers and reports such as Tech Nation.
Effective Promotion & Thought Leadership: championing and connecting the digital sector in London, the UK, and internationally via international trade missions, media engagement and events.

 

Future Fifty

Future Fifty is a programme for selected growth stage companies providing bespoke access to expertise within both the Government and across the private sector.
