About us

Through our active involvement in the sector, coupled with our sponsorship of The Sunday Times Tech Track 100 and Tech Nation Rising Stars, we have the pleasure of working with the UK’s most imaginative and inspirational tech companies.

Hearing these businesses face similar challenges and opportunities, we wanted to create a central hub that sheds light on a wide variety of issues and talking points pertinent to the tech sector. Alongside this, we wanted to provide an opportunity for tech businesses to share their own personal experiences and lessons learnt to help others navigate the complexities of running a business in an industry that never stands still.

After months of development, plugd:in was born in 2017. With continuous evolution and specialist knowledge in the sector, we are able to showcase advisory backed guidance to tech businesses enabling them to prosper and scale in growth. This leads us to our hub today - regular, original content, exclusively created for all fast-growth tech businesses.

We hope you like it!
