Tech Nation reborn with Founders Forum Group acquisition


Founders Forum Group, a global community and group of businesses supporting entrepreneurs at every stage of their journey, has formally acquired Tech Nation.

Founders Forum Group, led by Carolyn Dawson OBE, will continue to execute Tech Nation’s mission to empower tech entrepreneurs, scale innovative startups and provide a united platform for UK tech founders.

FF Group plans to relaunch a number of Tech Nation programmes and reports on the UK tech sector as part of its existing portfolio of events and services tailored to entrepreneurs, continuing to build on the organisation’s activities to date.

Anyone interested in applying for a Global Talent Visa can continue to do so as normal. Under the FF Group umbrella, Tech Nation will continue to process applications while the Home Office identifies a new endorsing body to take this forward.

Outgoing Tech Nation founder and CEO Gerard Grech said: “With Tech Nation’s expertise in supporting and promoting startups & scale-ups, and Founders Forum’s global network and resources, UK tech looks well-positioned to drive even greater growth and innovation going forward.

“Thank you to everyone who has supported Tech Nation and been part of the journey. As well as many of you who have sent messages of support over the last few months and the whole Tech Nation team, past and present for making it happen. Here’s to the next chapter of UK Tech.”

Tech Nation’s final report in its current form outlined how the UK’s tech economy could reach a $4tn valuation by 2032.
