Campaign

Since its inception in 2013, Tech London Advocates has been campaigning to tackle the biggest challenges facing the UK tech community and support the entrepreneurs, innovators and investors that have helped to build the fastest growing sector in the UK economy.

In April 2018, 700 Advocates attended Here East in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to celebrate TLA5, the fifth anniversary of Tech London Advocates. As well as recognising the extraordinary growth of London tech over the past five years, speakers discussed the future success of the industry, in terms of investment, talent, emerging tech verticals and positive social impact.

The sustained media campaign has driven coverage across national and international publications and elevated the founder, Russ Shaw’s profile, who now sits at the heart of London tech as a highly respected, expert commentator. Russ Shaw is consistently part of the conversation on a number of issues – investment, access to talent, diversity – and has appeared on BBC Business Live, Sky News, Bloomberg and is quoted regularly in The Times, Evening Standard and City AM.
