TECH EXPERTS JOIN FORCES TO MAP UK INNOVATION ECOSYSTEM
London, 24 August 2018 – Big Innovation Centre and Deep Knowledge Analytics form strategic partnership to produce regular landscape overviews of UK Innovation Ecosystem and DeepTech industries.
The two first joined forces to produce their Blockchain Industry in UK Landscape Overview Q2 2018 report in coordination with the All Party Parliamentary Group on Blockchain. The report – the largest and most comprehensive to date – demonstrated the extent that the Blockchain and the Crypto Economy spheres had matured over the past few years. It includes the profiling of over 200 companies, 170 investors, 20 tech hubs, 15 think tanks and R&D centres, 10 incubators and accelerators, and the 100 faces of the Blockchain industry in the UK.
Following the success of their joint report, Deep Knowledge Analytics and Big Innovation Centre have now established a strategic partnership to produce comprehensive analytical industry reports on the most innovative and rapidly evolving sectors within the UK Innovation Ecosystem.
In recent years, the UK has been at the forefront of the Digital Economy and has rapidly evolved full-fledged industries. What was previously considered a niche for young start-ups, has now become a mature sector. Today, the UK Digital Economy, which includes subsectors in Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain (Crypto Economy), FinTech and Digital Health, is attracting significant levels of investment and new industry activity that it is beginning to have a big impact upon the entire UK economy.
Professor Birgitte Andersen, CEO of Big Innovation Centre, said: “The UK is in an excellent position, both industrially and governmentally, to become a leader in the global race toward the Digital Economy of tomorrow.
“Carefully mind-mapping the UK Innovation Ecosystem is an essential step along the road towards realising the nation’s true innovation potential. We are excited to be joining forces with Deep Knowledge Analytics to strengthen our collective efforts toward making that possible tomorrow a tangible reality.”
Dmitry Kaminskiy, Founder of Deep Knowledge Analytics, said: “The UK could and should be considered as one of the most fertile grounds for cutting edge technological and economic innovation, competing on the same level as other well-promoted high-tech hubs, such as Silicon Valley.
“It is crucial to unite the UK’s existing elements and resources in a convergent and highly synergistic manner. Deep Knowledge Analytics and Big Innovation Centre are deeply unified in this belief, and we are looking forward to working together to accelerate the transformation of the UK Innovation Ecosystem.”
