Our story began in Shoreditch in 2011 when we were launched to support the East London tech cluster known as London Tech City — or Silicon Roundabout. Since then we’ve been on a journey, spreading our activities to cover other parts of the UK, and set up Tech North to run programmes across the North of England. In November 2017, the launch of Tech Nation was announced, consolidating Tech City UK and Tech North’s impact.

Now as Tech Nation, we’re expanding our network of growth programmes, events, skills and data resources to reach all corners and clusters of the UK.
