Dear TechBritannia team, Do not doubt the magnitude of what you have started! The UK as a Tech Nation needs a strong voice to celebrate the success of tech entrepreneurs. Not just in Central London, but across the whole country: from Aberdeen to Andover; from Belfast to Brighton; from Cardiff to Carlisle; from Dundee to Dover... Keep up the great work!

Really liking this as a project. Grass roots, from a team who know the space. All the very best Eric! A third of the way there. Contact the CEBR for some publicity on this.

Should this project reach the scale of TechTrailblazers it will make a huge difference to the startup tech community. Thanks for all your efforts in getting this going Steve

I really believe in what you're doing. Tell the government about Cambridge and Bristol. There's plenty of great ideas outside London and the Northern Powerhouse. Why do they totally ignore Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales? English Parliament or TechBritannish Parliament? I know which I'd rather see

Brilliant idea, we wish you every success. We work across the whole of the Thames Valley promoting tech so let us know how we can help.
