For several years Leeds has had some of the fastest scaleup growth in the North of England – defined by companies that have achieved three years of 20% growth in revenue or employees.
Investors have taken notice. In the year up to September 2022, Leeds-based tech startups secured £288m in venture capital investment, up 88% on the year prior, one of the few cities to buck the funding downturn.
Combined, the so-called ‘Northern Triangle’ tech startups – those based in Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield – have raised £1.3bn in funding over the last five years.
In the second week of LDF, this invitation-only roundtable brings together Leeds Leaders in Tech to discuss opportunities and critical issues facing the tech ecosystem. Designed to convene change-makers and local leaders to facilitate impactful discussions and provide the opportunity to utilise the platform of LDF to progress change.
