Government relations and policy support for a UK-wide coalition


We have five core key objectives:

Coadec Connects

Coadec Connects is our UK-wide tour to meet and consult with our fast-growing community, and hear first-hand about the opportunities and challenges faced by founders across the country. But also, so we identify and support new, emerging talent.

To speak on behalf of founders, it’s vital that we also understand the local barriers to growth, and act as a genuine UK-wide policy voice to government.

Coadec Consults

Coadec regularly consults our community on the issues that affect their growth and provides independent government relations and policy support.

If you have a policy concern or question about approaching government, then please do get in touch.

Coadec Campaigns

Coadec campaigns for the UK to be the world-leading digital economy and best place in the world to set-up and scale a tech business.

We regularly attend meetings and host policy roundtables with government and engage on matters that may affect the growth and success of our startup community.

Coadec Champions

We regularly contribute to and write for the national media, speak at high-profile events and champion our community direct to government. Recent coverage includes the Sunday Times, the front-page of City AM and Tech Crunch.

Recent media coverage includes:

Sunday Times: Tech firms: make it easier for migrants

City AM: The government must relax visa rules to safeguard our tech boom

The Drum: Tech bosses urge new visa regime to draw brightest and best to Britain

Coadec's Club

We host monthly startup events for our founders with Government, investors and policy experts.

Recent events include:

A startup breakfast with the Director General for Digital and Media, Matthew Gould MBE

An evening with Ann-Marie Huby, Co-founder of Justgiving
