Eight founders, leaders highlight fintech and deep tech as Bristol’s top sectors
By Pete Read, CEO & Founder, Persona Education
Which sectors is Bristol’s tech ecosystem strong in? What are you most excited by? What does it lack? What are the tech investors like in Bristol? What’s their focus?
Bristol is strong in media/animation, edtech, social impact, health and science. I’m most excited by edtech and the possibility to reach and positively impact millions of students via online learning. It’s weaker in hardware and fintech.
There are several very active tech investment networks coming from several angles, e.g., university-led, groups of private angels and tech incubators. The great thing is they all collaborate and share resources, ideas and expertise in initiatives such as The Engine Shed and Silicon Gorge.
