Silicon Cities: An infographic map of UK’s clusters

by Will Corry on August 24, 2014

A new report from Policy Exchange says that Britain is already benefitting from the growth of technology firms with 1.2million people employed in the sector. The technology sector also received more equity investment than any other sector over the past three years. However, the fruits of this success are predominantly being felt in and around London and the South East.

A recent study showed that the concentration of tech employment in the South East is greater than the national average in as many as 47 out of 66 local authorities, with Wokingham having more than five times the national proportion of technology workers.

In London alone, 21 out of 33 local authorities have a higher proportion of workers employed in technology related roles than the national average.

Between 2009 and 2012, 27% of all new jobs in London can be attributed to the technology sector and there are now an estimated 34,000 tech businesses in the Capital.

The final chapter or a new leaf for UK book stores? / Natasha Evans, analyst, Pragma

by Assistant Editor on August 21, 2014

By Natasha Evans, analyst, @Pragmauk– a St Ives Group company

The new Foyles flagship store was unveiled on London’s Charing Cross Road in July, in the iconic former Central Saint Martin’s building. With customers hailing it ‘the future of the modern bookstore’, I decided it was time to see the store for myself.

I visited the store with trepidation that it might have lost some of Foyles’ charm in the quest for modernisation, whilst simultaneously compromising the quirkiness of the original Saint Martin's building. Whilst this fear wasn't unfounded, the store is big, bright and has irrefutably thrown Foyles into the 21st Century.
