....fish and silicon chips, anyone?

southend is officially a tech town

BEATING LONDON FOR DIGITAL DENSITY

  

The UK has digital suburbs and tech towns, not just cities. 


London’s digital density is below the UK average at 0.92, while Southend at 7.3 is one of the most tech specialised local economies in the UK.


SOUTHEND is an ideal spot to launch or grow a tech business, a new report has revealed.


Changing the usual perception as just East London's seaside town ,Southend has been named in the top 16 “silicon suburbs” in the UK where the digital tech sector is growing.


A report by Tech Nation revealed that Southend has higher than average levels of tech employment, and could prove to be a fertile breeding ground for the next generation of tech start ups.
