Show Notes 85: UK Tech Week launched with Stuart Clarke MBE

This last week, UK Tech Week was launched, and a host of events took place across the UK in celebration.


We asked it’s Founder, Stuart Clarke MBE, to talk to us about the inspiration behind creating an umbrella platform to showcase tech communities across the UK.


With events throughout the year in most regions from Glasgow to Basildon, Humberside to Bristol it was great to hear about how different tech weeks differentiate themselves based on local expertise. We talk about capital, partnerships, and why something like UK Tech Week can expand the reach of tech to a much broader audience through collaboration.


Do head over to the UK Tech Week website and social channels to find out more.


We also had some updates from Chris Bruce on Cambridge Tech Week too, including:

  • The Innovation Alley exhibition call has been announced - Innovation Alley takes place on Tuesday 10th September at the Corn Exchange and will showcase 50 innovative startups, 10 scaleups and a small number of corporates to showcase the exciting diversity of tech innovation. Nominations close by 30th May. 

  • The call for contributors closes 13th May, so if you are interested in a speaking slot or being part of a panel or fireside chats there is still time to apply (conditions are on the website). 

  • The registrations for delegate tickets went live this week, with super early bird rates for the first 50 registrations. Will we see you at #CamTechWeek?

In this week's Tech News we have Riverlane, Wellcome Sanger Institute, CN Bio, and The AI and Digital Hub
