Glasgow launches tech database to showcase £2.6 billion regional tech ecosystem

Glasgow City Council and Invest Glasgow have worked with to build and launch a comprehensive database of Glasgow’s rapidly growing technology ecosystem.

Introducing the Glasgow Tech Ecosystem Platform: an open-access database that connects start-ups with investors and corporates. The platform also provides insight on the regional innovation economy and showcases the Glasgow City Region to the global tech ecosystem.


Specifically designed to support scaling tech communities, the platform uses reliable intelligence, overarching trends and headline figures as well as detailed data on start-ups, scale-ups, and corporates across the City Region.

The data is open access and collaborative. Any start-up, investor, or ecosystem stakeholder can add their company and organisation details and edit their profile.

The data covers 740+ technology-based start-ups as well as investors and accelerators, universities, co-working spaces, tech meetups and much more. This robust picture of Glasgow’s tech community strengthens the resilience of the sector and allows our creative and innovative SMEs to scale and grow.
