Welcome to Edtech UK – a new strategic body set up to help accelerate the growth of the UK’s education technology sector in Britain and globally. Incubated by The Education Foundation, the new body is a “front door” for industry, investment and government and a convening voice for all of the education and learning technology sector including educators, startups, scale up and high growth companies, large corporations, investors, regulators and policy makers.
Edtech UK launched in October 2015 with a major report on the sector and a focus on the London edtech ecosystem. The work of Edtech UK will be Britain-wide and we will help support, showcase and develop the sector, with a focus on creating more jobs, developing new skills, understanding what works and driving economic growth. Its focus from the outset will be global with an ambitious programme of work to take the Best of British edtech companies to the world and be a launchpad for the world’s best education and learning technology organisations to base themselves and grow in the UK. It will also have a dynamic membership of organisations drawn from the UK and around the world to drive forward and invest in the development of the sector in Britain and globally.
Edtech UK builds on the success of the Education Foundation’s pioneering Edtech Incubator programme that has been running since 2013 and the work of organisations such as Innovate Finance in the financial technology (fintech) sector and MedCity in the medical technology (medtech) sector
