Re: I googled it,
Me too, from their site;
Tech City UK was launched in Shoreditch in 2010 by the UK Prime Minister David Cameron to support the East London tech cluster known as Silicon Roundabout. We have since grown our support to Greater London and other cities around the UK.
"We are a publicly, funded non-profit team with a private sector mentality. Our focus is on creating the optimum conditions for digital technology businesses and entrepreneurs to thrive across the UK. Through our programmes and policy work, we accelerate the growth of digital businesses in London and across cities at all stages of their development.
We receive public funding from the UK Government’s Department for Culture, Media & Sport, via Innovate UK. Our funding for 2015-2016 is £2.2 million and covers our programmes, policy informing and championing work. In order to deliver greater support to the digital business community we complement a small percentage of our funding through sponsorship.
Our vision and culture
We are a small team with big ambitions (and smiles :)"
What more can you expect from one of Dave's well informed twch ventures?
I like the way it is funded by a ministry that lumps IT in with Culture, Media and Sport, Media may be IT related in some aspects but it is wrong to describe the IT industry as a part of Media, more like the other way round in reality.
The smiles mentioned above are probably related to the 'Small Team' divvying up £2.2m and looking at minimum £50k wages.
