Did you know that more than a third of Europe’s fastest -growing tech companies are based in the UK?
Yesterday Theresa May launched the sixth annual London Tech Week festival. She said that the UK is ‘on the cusp of the next great industrial revolution.’
Taking place across London from 10 to 14 June. The event aims to promote the capital as a global technology hub.
Mrs May announced several ambitious investment commitments to the UK’s tech industry. These will total around £6m at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Monday.
“We want the UK to be the place everyone thinks of – and comes to – first when they want to develop their world-changing tech ideas. This is a challenge shared between industry and Government.”

London Tech Week is now in its sixth year. We will see hundreds of events take place across five days in a celebration of the UK’s technology sector.
In recent years some of the world’s biggest tech companies have moved into London. These include Apple’s new base in Battersea and new headquarters for Facebook and Google in King’s Cross.
“London is Europe’s leading tech hub. It’s helping to create even more jobs and investment for the capital and the wider UK economy,” said the mayor of London Sadiq Khan.
“As our city’s tech ecosystem continues to grow it’s important that we encourage greater inclusivity and diversity across the tech sector. Also, ensure that London stays open to investment and talent from around the world.”
