The latest episode of Scaling, Failing & Prevailing talks to Tim Robinson, COO of Tech East.
Business podcast explores the state of tech in East Anglia
Tech East is a not for profit membership organisation that aims to connect the tech communities in the East of England and provides a single voice for the needs of these businesses in the East. It was created in 2006.
Tim Robinson, chief operating officer of Tech East, talks to the podcast hosts Adelina Chalmers and James Parton about the state of tech in East Anglia.
Their discussion covers how Tech East represents the region and lobbies government, what’s going on, talent and skills, the role of universities, and there's a debate on whether the region needs a stronger "tech identity”.
Tim says the East of England has a number of smaller but important centres such as Cambridge, Norwich, Ipswich and Martlesham where BT has one of its global R&D centres. By joining together, they can be on the same playing field as bigger places like Manchester and Edinburgh.
