Graham Hatton of StartEDIN gave us his thoughts on the success of Edinburgh’s tech cluster, ahead of their networking event later this month
I love Edinburgh. What’s not to love? There’s a castle and a volcano (dormant) in the city centre! Anyone who has visited Edinburgh will know that it is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. However, most visitors will probably be unaware of the city’s vibrant tech scene.
Academic excellence has been an important factor is Edinburgh’s success. The University of Edinburgh’s School of Informatics has produced more world-leading and internationally excellent research than any other university in the UK according to the REF 2014 assessment for computer science and informatics.
With the tech sector across the UK moving so quickly and it can hard to keep up with the latest developments. For those interested in what’s happening in Edinburgh we’re hoping to make things a bit easier. First of all we’ve produced a short film so you can hear directly from tech companies on why they love Edinburgh.
And finally for those interested in working in Edinburgh the people behind the Silicon Milkroundabout jobs fair will be hosting their first event outside London in Edinburgh. The event on the 7th March is a great opportunity to meet with a wide range of tech companies who are all hiring. You can also climb a volcano during your visit!
