Tech South West Annual Survey 2021

The Tech South West Annual Survey is back.

Anyone working in or around tech in the South West can take part. The findings will help to identify key trends in the tech sector, reveal where funding is coming from, and shine a light on priorities and opportunities in the year ahead.

Dan Pritchard, co-founder of Tech South West, said: “The Tech South West Annual Survey is all about giving a platform to our tech community to share their perspective on current trends, barriers and opportunities in the sector. 

“Whether you’re a CEO or a Marketing Manager, a pre-seed startup or established company, we want to hear from you. Take the survey and tell us what it’s like at ground-level as we move forward into a new year of opportunity.”

The survey also reveals top tech trends that everyone should be keeping an eye on in the sector.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has topped the survey for three consecutive years as the most anticipated tech trend of the year ahead. Automation and Cloud Software were also in the top 3 for 2020, with cleantech and the Internet of Things also scoring highly.

The findings will be shared with tech hubs and clusters across the region, and analysed by tech experts at the February Tech Gathering.

All those who take this year’s survey can choose to be entered into a free prize draw for a Heng balance lamp worth £50.
