UK Tech Advocates represents the collaboration of the six UK Global Tech Advocates groups – Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, London, West England and North.

Global Tech Advocates is the only truly international grassroots tech community, uniting the private sector in multiple cities and regions worldwide. More than 30,000 business leaders, experts and investors volunteer their time to campaign for the betterment of the global tech industry.

The organisation is volunteer-led, proudly independent and not-for-profit. The ethos of informal networking and peer-to-peer support has resonated with tech leaders worldwide.

Russ Shaw CBE, Founder of Tech London Advocates & Global Tech Advocates said:

“It’s great to be involved in the inaugural UK Tech Week – to celebrate and champion all of the diverse and innovative tech growth we’re seeing across the country. The UK’s tech ecosystem has expanded tremendously over the past decade, and it’s important that all the regional hubs connect, collaborate and support one another through initiatives like this.”
