Building a tech startup is really hard.
As a founder you should be focused on growth:
Not hiring coders that leave after six months
Or briefing projects to dev shops who don't get it
And the last thing you need is to be the quality controller of some offshore team
Established in 2004, we’re a plug-in tech team for
startups. We'll help you scale your business with the right tech - strategy to code - without your head exploding.
Who we are.
Founded in 2004, our mission is to Do Things Better.
We built custom technology and innovation projects for big companies – like BBC Children in Need, BAE Systems and John Lewis – but decided we’d rather help people like us: founders.
Our startup clients - like QHS and Amrita - have achieved 100s of % growth from working with us.
And our proven process - The Tech Bootcamp™ - was included as a best practice in the 2019 Parliamentary Review.
We've built products for ourselves, and others, and invested in tech startups. We're entrepreneurs like you.
"When our backs are against the wall The Tech Dept are always by our side. Doing what needs to be done. A step change compared to the other dev shops we've hired – who literally wouldn’t fix the stuff they broke."
No more tech drama
We’ve helped dozens of startups and large companies innovate at the highest level for over 18 years.
Before The Tech Dept
Hiring tech people and partners feels risky
Your existing technology is not where it needs to be
You’re distracted from your main skills
You don’t know what you don’t know
Feeling pressure from investors and competitors
Here's how it works
Get on The Tech Bootcamp™
At the end of the workshop, you will find the simplest thing you can do for the least cost and biggest impact to create improvement in your company.
Build your tech
All of our developers are in-house and in the UK.
At some point you'll want the security and flexibility of having an in-house tech team. We help onboard that team and even help you hire and train them. If appropriate, we can also stay on as advisors or additional outsource resource.

at no cost
