It’s been a busy September for Tech Nation and the entire UK tech sector, as we start returning to in-person work and travel the country to visit regional tech hubs. We announced new cohorts for our Net Zero, Applied AI and Future Fifty programmes, and launched the first Libra programme for Black and underrepresented founders in the UK. A number of key voices at Tech Nation contributed to an engaging London Tech Week in a hybrid live-streamed, on-demand and in-person event.
In his latest audio review, CEO Gerard Grech reflects on this month’s highlights, covering the rate of company unicorn creation across the whole of the UK; the new group of net zero companies tackling climate change; a special edition podcast with LocalGlobe’s Saul Klein on our recent Jobs and Skills report; the impact of the first programme to support underrepresented Black founders in the UK on their journeys to scale ambitious tech companies, and much more.
