We are proud to sponsor the UK Tech Awards again this year. Innovation is once more a hot topic from the continued success globally of the London based digital community, right through to the establishment of the Northern Powerhouse and Midlands Engine.

Tech City UK in partnership with Nesta recently released their Tech Nation 2016 report revealing the digital tech economy has created jobs 2.8x faster than the rest of the economy (2011-2014). Not only that, 41% of digital tech economy jobs exist within traditionally non-digital industries. A staggering 58,000 digital tech businesses are found across the UK. We are now more than ever proud to support the thriving UK Tech community. To read more about the recently released Tech Nation report visit

The UK tech awards reflect the contribution all companies make to the industry from privately owned start-ups through to AIM Listed companies. These awards are a great opportunity for us to celebrate the achievements of the sector.
