Tech City UK Calls on the UK’s Tech Nation for an In-Depth Look into the Digital Economy

Tech City UK is calling for anyone who operates in the UK tech sector to share its voice in its annual Tech Nation survey looking into the current state of the UK’s digital economy. Survey link: http://buff.ly/2ffrv50

Tech Nation 2016 provided the most detailed analysis to date of how the digital sector is driving economic growth, showcasing the innovation and energy of tech hubs across the UK. The report was well received around the world and has become a beacon of information into the performance of 27 of the UK’s digital clusters.

Tech City UK, the organization which accelerates the growth of digital businesses and skills across the country, is now asking the tech community in every region to complete its 2017 survey. The new survey will take an even more in-depth look at how the digital economy is evolving, giving a greater voice to the UK’s tech communities and highlighting the considerable progress they are making.

The organisation is asking to hear from people across the sector. Tech businesses, academics, investors and other members of the ecosystem, can complete the survey in a few minutes. The report will be released in the first quarter of 2017.

Gerard Grech, CEO of Tech City UK, commented: “The Tech Nation report has become a leading resource to showcase the depth and breadth of the UK’s digital economy. Working with an incredible collection of local community partners, we’re able to see how each cluster is growing, the variety of tech businesses in each region and the potential impact on the wider economy. Last years report showed that the UK digital tech industry is growing 32 percent faster than other sectors and generating jobs 2.8 times faster. We’re eager to hear from people across the community to get a real feel for how we’re performing in 2017.”
