Membership organisation Tech East is leading the charge to make the East of England the next global tech cluster, snapping at the heels of Silicon Valley, the Boston Triangle and London.
Through its events and networking programme it connects start-ups with angel investors, helps them choose the right co-working space or incubator, and assists with finding customers in the private or public sectors. Scale-up support can include help with entry into an accelerator, finding Series A venture capital or collaborating with partners on Innovate UK funding competitions.
Members can take advantage of the Tech East London Embassy, based near Liverpool Street, as well as its Workspace Passport that enables members to hot desk and book meeting rooms in London and at tech hubs across the region: Cambridge, Norwich and Ipswich.
