Autumn 2014 sees the blossoming of TechBritannia, a platform for the British Tech community. Starting with biotech, cleantech and information technology, it will look at the past, present and future of Britain’s colossal role in the world of technology.

The bedrock of TechBritannia will be a hard-hitting and lively news site looking at all aspects of technology from academia (from five year olds to PhD researchers) and startups, to government and large enterprise – and will even highlight our tech-expats and the growing number of overseas students and startups that see Britain as the go-to place to find mentorship, investment and inspiration.tbSample page

Backed by leading industry associations, such as techUK, and in active partnership discussions with the government and regional stakeholders, TechBritannia will look beyond London’s TechCity to the four corners of the British Isles to uncover the latest and greatest developments in British technology.

Founded by a team of veteran technology journalists and serial entrepreneurs, it looks at all aspects of the Great British technology journey from the early beginnings of Charles Babbage, Ada Lovelace and Rosalind Franklin, we have been the first but often then the forgotten, force in driving technology. TechBritannia is committed to uncovering the greatness and rebalancing the tech history books and ensuring that there is credit where credit for British technology is due. It is important not just to make the great leaps in research and development but to be seen to be the source of disruptive inventiveness.

The Founding Team

The founders share a passion for technology and a desire to champion great British tech talent regardless of its location or origin. The founding team, although at present based in London, began their journeys further afield.

Co-founder and launch editor Eric Doyle was born in Middlesbrough, yet studied in his adopted home Yorkshire.

Rose Ross, co-founder and Eric’s co-conspirator, was born in Farnham, Surrey, but raised in Redruth in Cornwall before leaving to study and live in Birmingham for over a decade.

In the way that the Olympic flame toured the British Isles to connect Britons to the London based event, in early 2015 TechBritannia will embark on a first of its kind tour to hold the digital flame to the great technology and technologists across Great Britain.

techtorchThe Tech Torch Tour will be crowdfunded to rally the tech community and engage with all the exciting developments around the UK.

TechBritannia is a new platform for British technology businesses and technologists. Focused initially on being a news-site it will create a powerful technology-focused community with events, awards and other platforms to support British tech.
