About TechSPARK

techspark-on-laptopTechSPARK is the information hub for all things tech in Bristol, Bath and the West of England region.

Our mission is to shine a light on tech innovation and celebrate the brilliant people that power the companies and products based in our part of the world. We aim to connect and inform all of those who work in tech in the region by providing news, profiles and resources like events calendars, jobs boards and a lot more.

We also run regular TechSPARK and BathSPARK events.

These events aim to create opportunity, encourage diversity and spark new ventures. Coder meet Creative. Creative meet entrepeneur. Entrepreneur meet talented graduate. This is social networking (for real) with local digital people enjoying a drink, and talking about what they love. BathSPARK events are held in Bath and TechSPARK events in Bristol, but we hope to encourage collaboration between tech companies in both towns, so anyone is welcome.
