Key challenges in the sector

The UK’s technology sector is thriving, continuing to be one of the fastest-growing sectors both in the UK and worldwide. Being innovative by nature, technology businesses rely on funding to succeed in developing products for today’s markets and those of the future.

With many sectors continuing to progress through the digitisation journey, and the drive to integrate AI across existing platforms, the marketplace looks to continue to grow. Whilst underlying reliance on tech giants is a factor, the dawn of Co-Pilot has accelerated many software products.

Key challenges to growth include a shortage of resource and skilled workers as well as access to growth capital.

The UK provides tax incentivises for investment in innovative start up and scale up businesses, ranging from the Enterprise Investment Scheme to Research and Development Tax Relief.
