The aim of the 12 Clusters of Tech report was to definitively map out the UK tech scene and highlight the best innovators in each corner of the country. One year later and the report is complete and ready for release at London Tech Week 2021, taking place between Monday 20th to Friday 24th of September.
As always, London Tech Week will bring together founders, global leaders, senior investors and rising stars from across the world to collaborate and discuss the vital role of technology in society. The festival’s key purpose is to showcase how tech is transforming both business and society by driving important conversations around transformation, diversity and innovation of which we’re proud to play a part.
You may already know that the tech and digital ecosystem here in Wales is a thriving and rapidly expanding sector with scaling opportunities across Tech and into Cyber, Data and FinTech.
The Welsh report highlights that there has never been a better time for tech and digital startups in Wales — with a large number of support mechanisms, funds and expertise available for organisations across the board. It’s no wonder then that Wales’ cities are increasingly becoming centres of service and digital companies, with Cardiff currently the fastest-growing city in the UK.
“We’re very lucky in Wales to have a welcoming tech community built around hubs such as Tramshed Tech. Whilst the pandemic may have reduced face-to-face meetings, the partnerships and contacts we’ve made over the years have continued to be a big part of our success.” — Josh Evans, Co-Founder, Configur
“Part of the reason AMPLYFI is growing so fast is our location. People join our team from all over the globe to solve hard problems without compromising on their quality of life. AMPLYFI’s combination of ground-breaking technology, culture and Welsh countryside allows us to compete for the smartest people with the biggest organisations in the world, which in turn helps us build better solutions for global decision makers.” — Chris Ganje, CEO, Amplyfi
These takeaways provide an interesting snapshot into the tech scene in Wales. With such a strong foundation of support and proven track record, it’s not surprising that Wales is proving to be not only an attractive place for startups and early-stage businesses to start their journey but also a strategic base for larger organisations from across the World.
Come and see what Wales has to offer and decide for yourself whether this could be a great home for your business. We welcome anyone curious about joining our community at Tramshed Tech to come and visit us — we’d love show you around, introduce you to members of our vibrant community and connect you with our network of entrepreneurs, mentors and investors.
