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

We started life in 2010, with a mission to support the emerging Silicon Roundabout tech cluster in East London.

Anchored in Shoreditch, we’ve grown into an organisation which delivers programmes focused on accelerating the growth of digital businesses, in London and cities across the UK, at all stages of their development. Examples include Future Fifty, Digital Business Academy and the Internet of Things Launch Pad.

A publicly funded organisation with a private sector mentality, we also provide a voice of advocacy for digital entrepreneurs. We feed back our findings to policy-makers to influence change and we are dedicated to fostering the right conditions to start, grow and scale a digital business in the UK. We aim to make life better for digital entrepreneurs.
