PwC comments on publication of Scottish Technology Ecosystem Review.

Posted: 26th August 2020

Claire Reid, PwC Regional Leader and Head of Technology, Data & Analytics, comments on the publication of the Scottish Technology Ecosystem Review:

“How we support and nurture our tech businesses will play a major part in defining Scotland’s economic future. We welcome the findings of the Scottish Technology Ecosystem Review, the emphasis that has been placed on increasing the rate of start-ups, and crucially, creating an environment where these businesses can scale up and reach their full potential.

“From incubators like Codebase, to enablers like FinTech Scotland, and The University of Edinburgh’s plans to build Europe’s first regional data innovation centre, Scotland is on the cusp of making a global mark.

“There is much work to be done to create a truly world-class tech ecosystem, but by acting on the recommendations in this report, Scotland can grow its economy through job creation, increased tax revenues and overseas investment.”
