Startup Recruitment - Sponsorship

It is paramount for startups to hire talented people who want to work hard to build something from the ground up. However, the costs of sourcing and hiring a Developer or Software Engineer in the UK, especially in London, can be high, so many founders end up outsourcing the work to remote contractors based offshore.

Startups can look to India, Spain, China or many remote locations to get a job done but that doesn’t replace an in-house team of permanent hires with a shared vision for the longer term.

The Future for Smart Cities

With a global population explosion underway and increasing numbers of people migrating to urban centres, some argue that cities will have to get smarter or face collapse.  Which is why, according to industry analysts, the “smart city” will represent a $39.5bn (£25.1bn) marketplace by 2016.

Whole new cities, such as Songdo in South Korea, have already been constructed according to this template. Its buildings have automatic climate control and computerised access; its roads and water, waste and electricity systems are dense with electronic sensors to enable the city’s brain to track and respond to the movement of residents. But such places retain an eerie and half-finished feel to visitors – which perhaps shouldn’t be altogether surprising.

Cyber Security - Threats and Budgets Growing Exponentially

Commitment to combating the ever morphing security threats across industry, not least fuelled by the high profile attacks on the likes of Sony Pictures and Home Depot, is gathering serious pace.  cyber security start-ups raised more than $1bn for the first time in a single quarter - up from $540m for the first three months of last year and almost double the same period of 2014, according to data from private company research firm PrivCo.  Four years ago, total annual funding was less than $1bn.

Job Growth in UK Technology Sector Outstrips National Average

The Tech Monitor UK report has found employment in technology companies is much stronger than the UK-wide employment trend.

The new report by KPMG and Markit on the UK technology sector has used 10 years’ worth of data from the UK Tech Sector Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI), up until August 2013, to identify the main UK tech clusters, job hiring trends and how confident UK tech companies are in their business outlook for the next 12 months.
