Company overview

Why we exist

At the heart of our mission is the desire to create prosperity and opportunity for the next generation, ensuring the North is and continues to be part of the UK’s ongoing journey to becoming the world’s leading digital economy.

Who we are

Established in 2015, Tech North is a government-funded initiative delivered through Tech City UK. The specific goal of Tech North is to accelerate the development of the North’s digital economy through the promotion and support of digital entrepreneurship. Our remit is to attract talent, entrepreneurs and investment to the North of England specifically the seven cities of Hull, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield and Sunderland.

What we do

Working in collaboration and partnership with stakeholders across the North we aim to address the challenges tech entrepreneurs face in accessing finance, support, mentorship and talent. We champion initiatives that support the development of the North’s digital economy working with local and central government to inform policies that help accelerate growth. Working with Tech City UK, we’ll give digital entrepreneurs in the region a national and international voice.
