12 Clusters of Tech – East of England UK Tech Report

The 12 Clusters of Tech provides the ultimate guide to UK tech. The seventh in a twelve-month series of special reports uncovers the thriving tech scene in East England.

Over the next 12 months, London Tech Week and the UK Tech Cluster Group will explore the unique ecosystems and tech trends in every region of the UK. From space tech in the South West to cybersecurity in Northern Ireland, 12 Clusters of Tech charts the companies, sectors and case studies that make up the entire UK tech landscape.

The ninth report in the series is on the East of England, which is rapidly establishing a distinctive tech cluster of international appeal helping solve some of the world’s biggest challenges from climate change and health to the future of mobility with a depth and breadth of innovative, world-class technologies.

The ninth report on East of England covers:

• An overview of the tech landscape in East of England
• Profiles on the Established Tech Leaders (including ARM, Redgate & Naked Wines)
• Scaleup Stories (the tech companies spearheading growth including Vivid Q, Chorus Intelligence & Epos Now)
• Ones to Watch (uncover rising stars such as GeoSpock, Developing Experts & Pickr)
• The region’s cluster hotspots including AI, HealthTech,  Net Zero & Rainbird)

We are thrilled to observe that the report features companies that are FIG members (such as EPOS Now and Rainbird) and that in an accompanying Tech + Toast event on Friday 4 June, highlighting why the 12 Clusters of Tech’s spotlight was on the East of England, guest speakers included Developing Experts, Naked Wines, EO Charging, Epos Now and VividQ.

The series has since continued on to London (June), South East (July) and the South West (August).
