According to Tech City UK, the UK's Digital Technology Industries are growing 32% faster than the rest of the UK economy. There are now more than 40,000 digital technology companies in the UK’s capital, with that figure expected to exceed 50,000 by 2025.

• Consider how larger businesses can support innovation and accelerate growth across the UK
