Tech Nation 2016 is a report by Nesta and Tech City UK, produced in partnership with GrowthIntel. The most comprehensive analysis of the UK’s digital tech industries to date, Tech Nation 2016 underlines the economic importance of digital tech businesses, which are growing 32% faster than the rest of the UK economy.
The findings of this report show the continued growth of digital tech clusters. These are focused on areas where digital technology businesses are having the greatest impact: economic growth, employment, productivity and the digital disruption of traditional industries.
To get a comprehensive insight into digital employment, Nesta and Tech City UK analysed data from Government, job advertisements and official ONS data, allowing us to understand the impact of the digital technology economy on wider business, employment, and economic trends.
This report also turns its attention to the sectors in which the UK is excelling. Ultimately, Tech Nation 2016 demonstrates a Digital Tech Economy that is transforming British business for individuals, cities and the country as a whole.
