The Tech Nation 2017 report features some pretty terrific stats.
One that I especially like, but will no doubt get glossed over for the £6.8 billion and £100 billion money shots, is the number of Meetups hosted in London vs other EU cities.
This active sharing of ideas, most often driven by a single organiser, really is quite something and says a lot about the unique entrepreneurial dynamism of the London and wider UK economy.
Perhaps more importantly, it also underscores and celebrates the power of software to connect people in the real world.
Now, I’d love to see how London stacks up to New York, San Francisco et al.
