Tech Nottingham is an organisation with the mission to Make Nottingham a better place to live and work in technology.
This is achieved in five ways:

  • Community building - at our events and in our online communities

  • Improving student retention in the city - engaging directly with the student population to bring them into the local tech community

  • Education - Removing the barriers to becoming a part of the tech community and improving the skills and co-operation of tech workers within the city

  • Supporting businesses - helping both startups and established businesses address the challenges around running a tech business in Nottingham

  • Advocacy - Promoting Nottingham more widely as a place to work in technology and do business in the technology sector

Our Work

We run a Tech Nottingham monthly meetup, the largest in the area;  Women in Tech; a student outreach programme; a startup support programme; an annual Christmas party, and Hack24, our annual hackathon, run in the iconic Nottingham Council House overlooking the main city square in Nottingham.

We also work with local organisations to advocate for Nottingham as a place to do business in tech.

If you have any thoughts, ideas or questions, message us on the Tech Nottingham Slack group or email us at
