About

We work with digital startups and policymakers to create better policy for the digital economy.

Founded by tech entrepreneurs, The Coalition for a Digital Economy (Coadec) is a non-profit that campaigns for policies to support digital startups in the UK. We conduct research, host events, and run campaigns on behalf of the UK’s startup community.

Digital startups matter to the UK – they are an important source of innovation, jobs and growth. The UK’s digital economy is the fastest growing in the G20 and already makes up over 8% of GDP.

The UK should be the best place in the world to launch and grow a digital startup. That is why we campaign for policies to support the digital economy, calling for the government to:

  • Improve access to finance
  • Improve access to talent
  • Build world class digital infrastructure
  • Bring laws and regulations into the 21st Century
  • Use digital government to unlock innovation
