LTW special podcast: What the West Midlands is doing for the UK’s tech scene
London Tech Week provides a great opportunity to showcase the whole of the UK’s technology scene, not just that of the capital. In 2021 the West Midlands was named the fastest-growing region for tech by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport, with the area, predicted to create 52,000 new tech jobs and add over £2.7billion to the UK economy.
The latest in our digital dialogues examines the West Midlands tech scene in discussion with some of the tech leaders who know it best. The podcast looks at what makes the West Midlands a good choice for creating and growing tech businesses, how a diverse and talented tech workforce is encouraged and developing in the region, and how West Mids tech start-ups are having an impact on the UK tech scene, the role the tech sector is playing in improving sustainability, and looking at what the 2022 Commonwealth Games is doing for the region’s and UK’s tech sector.
