Building on the success of 2023, Cambridge Tech Week 2024 will be bigger and better than ever. Set within iconic buildings in the historic city centre of Cambridge, including Pembroke College and the Cambridge Union, Cambridge Tech Week offers an unmissable opportunity for innovators and investors to mix, to understand the ecosystem, make connections and identify investment or business opportunities. Once again, we look forward to welcoming entrepreneurs, founders, corporate leaders, innovators, start-ups, academia, government, media and international peers to share their invaluable experience and knowledge.

The theme this year is INNOVATE – INVEST – GROW, reflecting the key opportunities and challenges faced within the Cambridge tech cluster, across the UK and indeed internationally. Among the topics explored/activities taking place will be: Deep Dives into AI, Semiconductors, Quantum, Climate Tech and the current Innovation Landscape, Scale-up and Start-up competitions and exhibitions across our Innovation Alley and more, a Big Tech Debate, a VIP Deep Tech Dinner and special tours for international visitors and students of Cambridge’s innovation hubs and labs. Cambridge Tech Week serves as an epicentre for showcasing the latest knowledge and cutting-edge technology, positioning Cambridge, the East of England and the UK in the world tech spotlight.

Cambridge is home to Europe’s largest tech cluster. Known for its academic excellence, its inventiveness and creativity, Cambridge is renowned as a safe place to push the boundaries of what’s possible. The city produces almost three times more patent applications per capita than anywhere else in the UK and has been home to 23 billion-dollar businesses including Abcam, Improbable and Darktrace.

Chris Bruce, Chair, Cambridge Tech Week, said:

“Cambridge and the East of England are delighted to support UK Tech Week. We’re marking UK Tech Week with a special collaboration event, hosted by the University of East Anglia (UEA), Norwich. The event will highlight the importance of collaboration in growing the UK tech sector, in this instance across the East of England. We will double down on this approach at Cambridge Tech Week in September (9th-13th) and welcome contributions from across the UK and internationally.”
