Tech Nation Report 2018 – A message from the Head of Inward Investment

When Invest Bristol & Bath was formed in 2013 as the investment promotion agency for the city region, it was done so to celebrate the ‘Best of the West’.

Our drive was to build on the incredible work being done in the region, we recognised the success of our tech sector and its international potential. Five years on and the cluster is thriving, with the collaboration and connection between Bristol & Bath being at its heart.

Whilst we are once again thrilled that Tech Nation has recognised us as the UKs’ most productive tech cluster, we are disappointed that due to the selection of certain data sets only Bristol has been highlighted. On the ground we know that the cluster sits across the entire region with the two cities as its anchors.

We hope to work more collaboratively with Tech Nation in the future to make sure our whole sector is recognised.

Matt Cross

Head of Inward Investment
