Edinburgh reported as the best place for tech in UK
According to a report carried out by Tech Nation, Scotland’s capital city is the best place for tech companies right now.
Tech Nation surveyed the UK Tech Community on business, people, living and growth. The report, backed up by the government, is an annual series that over 3,400 responded to with the majority being tech founders or people working in the sector.
The respondents rated the capital city of Scotland on how good the city was for ‘doing business’. This was determined on a range of sub factors including access to talent.
The analysis found that 87% of the Edinburgh community rated the opportunities for high growth digital companies to scale up in Edinburgh as positive, followed by London (79%), Birmingham (71%) and Leeds (70%)
It seems to be a good year for Edinburgh so far, having also been voted as the world’s best city for millennials to move to earlier this year by Deustche Bank.
