05 Mar The Road to One Million
According to TLA (Tech London Advocates), London’s technology scene is lagging behind the FTSE 100 on gender diversity.
The Road to One Million aims to harness the campaigning power of the tech sector to reach a target of one million London tech jobs by 2023. We will be launching our Three Minute Challenge – creating a new job in London tech every three minutes – by focusing on some key areas:
- Increasing the diversity of London tech
- Inspiring young people and home-growth talent to pursue tech careers
- Keeping London open to international tech talent
- Improving London’s digital infrastructure
The success of any tech hub is based on its ability to attract investment and talent. London repeatedly breaks records for tech investment, but is facing a shortfall of skilled tech talent.
If London’s tech companies are to continue growing, and if the British economy is going to continue benefiting from the wealth and job creation that technology brings, London needs to drastically increase to capacity to attract, produce and retain technology professionals.
