According to a recent report by London Tech Week and UK Tech Cluster Group, the North West of England has been revealed as the perfect breeding ground for tech startups, scale-ups and unicorns. The region is already home to six (43 per cent) of the UK’s 14 digital unicorns.
“The UK is home to 35 per cent of Europe’s unicorns and, over the last four years, has created more unicorns than Germany, France, Sweden and the Netherlands. The North West has a long history of pioneering technologies, from being at the forefront of the Industrial Revolution, to its key role in the early days of computing. And in the 21st century, the region is forging new paths, with a focus on modern specialities – HealthTech, e-commerce and FinTech, says London Tech Week Festival Director Suzy Pallett.
