New technologies are creating opportunities and threats for all businesses.

Why Technology?

Our interest in the technology sector stems from the wave of disruptive innovation driving digital transformation across all sectors and business models

The UK has an impressive track record of leading innovation and is currently the clear leader in Europe, as evidenced by the number of large technology companies it has created.

These companies in turn have fuelled the growth in skills and the entrepreneurial atmosphere necessary to develop the next wave of high-growth disruptive technology companies.
