As of late September we will become a part of the Level 39 Technology Accelerator in London. Having the largest concentration of fast growing digital technology companies in Europe, we’re exited to enoy our new three-floor, 80,000 square foot playground occupying the 39th, 24th and 42nd floors of One Canada Square @ Canary Wharf. Together with our head office in Norway and our offices in Singapore & Sydney, London will be our 4th pin on the map.
Tech City UK
Tech City UK was launched in 2010, to support the growth of the technology cluster in East London. Tech City went on to become Europe’s largest digital cluster. In 2014 its role was expanded to embrace the whole of the UK, and Tech City UK now collaborates with the digital community, government, education establishments and business to support the growth of digital businesses across the country. London is rapidly emerging as the epicentre of global innovation in digital. Access to funding, depth of talent and the city’s role as a leading financial centre are all part of the attraction. After Silicon Valley and New York, the UK has the third biggest digital industry. Today, out of Europe’s 40 tech unicorns; 17 are located in Britain, of which 13 are in London. The Tech City UK Accelerator programme is offered to technology growth companies with ambitions and potential for international growth.
Innovation Norway is the Norwegian Government’s most important instrument for innovation and development of Norwegian enterprises and industry. They support companies in developing their competitive advantage and to enhance innovation. Together with Tech City UK they have spent the last three years of piloting the Tech City Executive Accelerator (TEA) programme. TEA has been developed based on inputs from forward-thinking tech executives that are looking to shape entire markets and change the way we work and live. The goal of TEA is to discover, develop and apply new approaches to the most critical growth challenges for digital companies in an increasingly interconnected world.
