A week of celebrating tech in our vibrant capital city

London Tech Week has arrived. We hope you all have a jampacked week of interesting events to attend. The team from techUK is dashing around the Capital at a variety of different events focused on leadership, AI and data innovation, public sector transformation and the future of work. Check out our calendar of events here.   

Latest figures released this morning from Dealroom and Tech Nation for the Government’s Digital Economy Council show that London is as vibrant as ever - UK contributes 13 of Europe’s 34 unicorns, worth 37% or $23bn in value and is the number one destination for tech talent – and this week celebrates that success while looking to an exciting future.

Throughout the week, we’ll be sharing our insights from the events that we’re attending, and we’ll list them below. We’d also love to hear from you so please get in touch via @techUK and over email.

Have a great week!
