Manifesto

To promote digital tech growth and excellence in the East using local tech businesses as examples in order to attract new business and talent from other parts of the UK and internationally

How?

Through a concerted PR campaign in the national news and business press, using social media with MPs, presentations by the LEP and CoCs, by entering (and winning) technical competitions with Innovate UK, briefing the UKTI and other influential stakeholders

To establish a TechEast ‘embassy’; a physical presence in London showcasing businesses and the sector, aiding business development and encouraging government investment

How?

Engage local tech companies and work with LEP, Councils and other public sector organisations to develop a business model to establish and maintain a physical London presence

To galvanise the sector by speaking with one voice to amplify the benefits for Tech companies in the East

How?

By agreeing clear messaging, providing nominated spokes people, and supporting with excellent and consistent collateral we will amplify news from the East

To excel by sharing best practice between members and ensure that TechEast companies are amongst the best run tech companies in the UK

How?

By organising networking for TechEast companies’ leadership teams, start up special interest groups (SIGs) for people in Marketing, HR, Legal and other functions to share experiences

To be recognised as the UK’s most open and collaborative digital tech cluster where new companies and entrepreneurs can thrive and grow in a supportive environment

How?

By welcoming new companies to the region in all we write and say, to encourage the management teams at tech clusters and shared spaces to meet and share ideas, and to write case studies about companies who have thrived in the East

To work with local and national educational partners to develop the relevant sector skills and benefit from cutting edge research

How?

By creating a buzz about the TechEast region on-line and in print where experience and newly qualified/trained people look for jobs or career advice.  By talking to TechEast companies to find out what skills students and apprentices need in order to successfully get jobs and then engage with education to design relevant courses

By succeeding with the above, we will create a further 5,000 jobs, generate an extra £650M GVA of economic growth in the East and be one of the UK’s Top 5 tech cluster by 2020
