Growth of the tech sector in the South West


By John Catchpole

Recent research has indicated that the number of new tech companies founded in the South West increased by 42% in 2017.

This is a great result for the tech sector, which is seen as a significant driver for growth in the region. The Tech Nation Report, due to be released next month, will provide further evidence of this trend by featuring Redruth & Truro as one of the UK's top Tech Clusters for the third year in a row.

A lot of hard work is being put into supporting this sector growth from a large number of stakeholders, and this article rightly flags the role played by the region's universities. However, it's important not to overlook the important role of the region's colleges and schools in generating a work force with the skills that tech businesses need to grow.
