Membership FAQs

How do you define an SME member?

We use the official European definition of an SME which is up to 250 employees and/or £44m GBP turnover. You can see the full SME definition here.

How much does membership cost?

Membership fees are calculated on the size of the company planning to join techUK. There are a number of factors including type of company, UK headcount, and UK turnover that input into the calculation. The first step towards membership is always a meeting with our Membership team where we can determine your annual fee. For further information please contact [email protected] or complete the online enquiry form above and the Membership team will be in touch to set up a meeting.  

How does membership work?

Membership of techUK is fully corporate. This means that should you join, all of your colleagues will have access to everything that we do at techUK – including access to over 400 free events a year, access to over 100 working groups and strategic committees, plus reports, white papers, blogs, and newsletters covering a range of critical themes for the tech sector. For further information please see our membership brochures above or contact [email protected]

Can non-UK businesses apply?

Our membership is open to any tech organisation that has operations in the UK. We would request that a business set up a registered entity in the UK by no later than the completion of the first year of membership with techUK, but for the first year we can accept co-working or virtual addresses. 

Can I join techUK as an individual?

techUK is a B2B network and membership is offered to corporate entities rather than on an individual basis. Should your organisation join techUK as a member, all of your staff have access to everything that we do at techUK.

techUK membership is by corporate annual subscription with a fee that is calculated from a company’s UK turnover and the number of UK staff. Please get in touch with [email protected] with any further questions.

How we work with our members

As a member-led body, our members shape our strategy, outputs, and programme of activities. Dependent on their strategic priorities, members can work with us in three distinct ways:

  1. Programmes
    techUK teams are focused on 21 distinct programmes of activity. These 21 Programmes sit under our three core focus areas: Developing Markets, Championing Emerging Technologies, and Shaping Policy and Regulation. Members can access these workstreams as part of their membership.
     
  2. Steering Boards
    Each of our Programmes has a representative steering board. Members lead these boards and shape our activities, bring focus to our policy objectives, and provide a consultative industry panel for government and other stakeholders.
     
  3. Working Groups
    techUK also manages around 100 working groups which oversee and direct specific techUK outputs and activities. Working groups cover a range of workstreams and help us to identify challenges and best practice.
