After London’s Silicon Roundabout … Newcastle the new Silicon City?

IN MARCH, the UK editor of The Next Web – a popular technology blog with global reach and appeal – wrote the following: “Mention the UK technology start-up scene to anyone outside the country and they’ll probably think of London’s vibrant scene around the Old Street roundabout, or maybe clusters in places like Cambridge, or at a push the North East of England around Newcastle.”

The comment resonated deeply with me. It was the first time I’d seen an influential tech commentator suggest what many of us had suspected – that something extraordinary was occurring in Newcastle, and the region as a whole.

What is happening now feels profoundly different to events of the past. We’re experiencing a perfect storm of ideas, commitment, passion and importantly, realisation.
