The Disruptors: meet East Anglia’s most disruptive tech businesses

1st August 2019

Meet the disruptive technology firms shaking up their industries in a new video series launched by the Cambridge Norwich Tech Corridor.

The Tech Corridor has teamed up with the University of East Anglia and Archant Video to produce the profiles of some of the region’s most exciting businesses.

Companies from across East Anglia will feature in The Disruptors, a series which looks at the businesses, what makes them disruptive, and what drives their teams to hit greater heights.

Alongside the videos, the Tech Corridor has put together an A-Z of Disruption, a series of articles from entrepreneurs and thought leaders from across East Anglia focused on topics relevant to disruptive businesses.

Cambridge Norwich Tech Corridor programme director Linn Clabburn said: “The Cambridge Norwich Tech Corridor initiative is all about showcasing this region as one of Europe’s most exciting growth stories, home to companies shaping the future of food, energy, medicine and mobility.

“The recent Tech Nation report showed East Anglia has over 19,000 tech businesses, which turned over £8.3bn last year and employ 89,000 talented staff. We at the Tech Corridor are certain this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the region’s potential.

“The Disruptors provides a perfect platform to showcase some of these brilliant firms. From the food and plant science specialists and digital creativity of Norwich, to the cutting-edge genomics and deep tech work going on in Cambridge, via the hidden gems in the heart of the Tech Corridor, our clusters really are inspirational.

“While some of the companies featured have developed game-changing technology, others have cultivated innovative business models or ways of working to help them survive and prosper in today’s fast-changing economy. This agility and willingness to evolve will be key to attracting the next generation of talent.

“We firmly believe that collaboration is key to success in business, which is why we’re delighted to be partnering with the University of East Anglia and Archant on The Disruptors.”
