Technology Sector Overview

About the Technology Sector in Oxfordshire

Oxfordshire is rapidly building a reputation as a leading technology hub in the UK with a rich history of creating new technology startups with computing, capitalising on the proximity to the intellectual outputs from the world-class University of Oxford.

Not quite on the same scale as London or San Francisco, the Oxfordshire tech sector contributed £1.8 billion to the economy in 2018 and employed over 37,000 people.

Oxford is home to some of the UK’s leading tech “unicorns”.
