TechSwindon is the first Switch On To Swindon sector specific project and aims to be the information hub for all things tech in Swindon and across the region, to shine a light on tech innovation and celebrate the brilliant people that power the companies and products based in this part of the world.
Aiming to connect and inform all of those who work in tech in the region by providing a central hub for news, profiles, events, resources and lots more, the work being undertaken will help to bring together the local business community and showcase what is on offer to the rest of the UK and the world.
Demonstrating that Swindon is a great place to work and live is crucial for the town’s future success and by collaborating with some of the most innovative people and businesses the country has to offer is a massive step forward in future-proofing the economy.
There are three key pillars which underpin the TechSwindon campaign:
Talent: Attracting and retaining the best talent to Swindon is a challenge deeply felt by organisations big and small. Tech Swindon will help businesses to thrive with our focus on activity to help retain and attract top national and international talent.
Ecosystem Development: The development of our existing workforce and industries is paramount to growth. The campaign will provide a number of community-led outlets that will nurture a close talent and entrepreneurial network that promotes support, growth and opportunity.
Business Growth: Redefining and repositioning Swindon as a great place to live and work. With a focus on helping leading companies to unlock the innovation in the town and our start-up community access the support and funding needed to grow.
Lucy Paine, Swindon Ecosystem Connector for TechSPARK said “As a newly launched initiative, Tech Swindon needs support from the business community to evolve and deliver impact upon our tech community, and working with the Chamber of Commerce in Swindon allows us to make new connections and strengthen our eco-system. We would like to thank Tim Major and the wider Chamber team for all their support”
