Medtech, healthtech and pharmatech

Perfectly placed in the thriving North West region, Liverpool is a city that’s rapidly gaining notoriety as a top UK tech hub. The city is often overshadowed by the sheer scale of Manchester’s growth, but this proximity to the UK’s largest tech hub outside of London is now helping Liverpool to attract top-class talent and investment.

Information & communication employment in the city has grown by 9% since 2015, largely thanks to its increasingly prestigious reputation in the medtech, healthtech and pharmatech industries - so much so that the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority created a non-profit organisation to support local early-stage healthtech startups.

The Merseyside city is attracting outside investment in wider digital, IT, and tech sectors too - in 2021, Sci-Tech Daresbury announced a new Digital Tech Cluster set to bring 1,000 tech jobs to the North West. It aims to give small businesses access to data analytics, AI, and supercomputing, to open up even more tech opportunities in the future.
