Within technology there are no geographical boundaries! That’s great news if you are an innovative tech startup who is looking to grow your company over the next few years.

Historically London was always the place where the talent migrated too, yet since COVID when employees were forced to work from home, some of the desire to be in such a central location has diminished. With employees proving that they can confidently continue their roles from just about anywhere, as long as they have a laptop and WIFI connection, the ability to work more independently has proven to be sustainable.

This means that in going forward, innovative tech startups can look further afield for a base and at a fraction of the cost in terms of business rent. Other main cities such as Birmingham, Manchester and Bristol offer an abundance of talented IT digital entrepreneurs with plenty of experience and exciting ideas.
