The Reading Tech Cluster

The Reading Tech Cluster, encompassing Reading and surrounding areas such as Slough and West Berkshire is a key part of the wider Thames Valley economy, one of the UK’s most successful regional economies and sometimes referred to as the “Silicon Valley” of the UK.
One of the key attributes of Silicon Valley as an economic powerhouse is the global supremacy of its interconnectedness amongst its stakeholders. For Reading Tech Cluster, tech companies, venture capitalists, local authorities, trade bodies, professional services firms, and centres of academic and research excellence need to connect more with each other to share ideas, bounce off potential new initiatives and work together to drive growth in the region.
In its paper on the Reading Tech Cluster the Thames Valley Society of Chartered Accountants (TVSCA) makes a call to action for closer collaboration amongst stakeholders within the Reading Tech Cluster and to create an organisation to promote and improve interconnectivity within the Reading Tech Cluster, encompassing Reading and surrounding areas such as Slough and West Berkshire. We welcome your views on this proposal. Please view the paper at the TVSCA LinkedIn group at : https://www.linkedin.com/groups/3037934/.  We welcome your comments to Michael Cooper (Past President, TVSCA) at felicityandmichael@btinternet.com or contact me here .
Please do share this proposal among your own networks. TVSCA aims to convene a meeting of interested parties this coming April to ascertain the level of support for such an organisation and the required next steps to make this a reality.
