Campaign

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

TLA hosts two major events for the UK tech community each year. The latest, Investor Showcase 2.0, convened more than 600 Advocates at Here East in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in May 2019. The event bought together leading figures from across Britain’s tech community to debate the challenges and opportunities facing London’s digital economy in the middle of ongoing Brexit negotiations.

Here, founder Russ Shaw announced the launch of the first GTA Festival, which will take place in China in October 2019 to celebrate international collaboration in tech and the launch of GTA’s first global tech hub.

The latest TLA report, London’s Tech Investment Landscape, outlined the results of an Advocate survey on Brexit, its effect on London tech and asked business and investment leaders about how the capital maintains its position as an international tech superpower.
