After Corona? – THE TECH SECTOR

The possibility club after corona podcast - the tech sector we want next

What has been the impact of the pandemic on the smaller tech and digital businesses in the UK?

Like or loathe it – everyone’s digital transformation plans got put into warp speed in 2020 and it isn’t slowing down anytime soon. Time will tell what impact a life lived online like this is having on our identity and concentration spans.

In this episode we’re interested in the impact on the smaller tech and digital businesses in the UK, and whether demand hit the roof or whether the technological need has actually been very specific, benefiting just a few strands of the sector.

Our special guests are:

Declan Cassidy, Chief Executive of Into Games
Tim Robinson, Chief Operating Officer of Tech East
Ben Collier, Co-founder of Ocasta
Antonia Forster, XR Specialist at Unity Technologies
Alex Holliman, Managing Director of Climbing Trees

Between them, these generous and curious folk bring experience from the games industry, tech business networks, mobile software development, virtual and augmented reality design and digital and search marketing.

They all answered the same questions – but with personal and heartfelt reflections spanning the period from April 2020 through to January 2021.
