We are techUK
techUK represents the companies and technologies that are defining today the world that we will live in tomorrow. More than 950 companies are members of techUK. Collectively they employ approximately 700,000 people, about half of all tech sector jobs in the UK. These companies range from leading FTSE 100 companies to new innovative start-ups. The majority of our members are small and medium sized businesses.
At techUK we lead the debates about technology and its potential impact on the future. We work to ensure that discussions are properly informed, so that the right decisions can be made regarding the development and use of technology for the good of the UK, for the good of people and for the good of our industry.
In 2016, techUK made a significant impact across a number of crucial areas. Key to this was our ability to quickly establish good relationships with new ministers and senior policy makers in the post EU-referendum world. This progress will continue in 2017 in the run-up-to, and post General Election.
Our many successes in 2016 are being mirrored in 2017, resulting in techUK being the clear ‘go-to’ organisation for the tech industry in the UK. Click here to see what our teams achieved in 2016.
