Plug-in tech team for early stage startupsBook a call
Building a tech startup is really hard.
You need to build a tech product, so where do you turn?
A good tech team costs lots of money (and equity)
A development shop could build the wrong thing.
And retaining a happy and productive team will require most of your time and focus.
Our mission is to help you scale your business with the right tech - without your head exploding.
Who we are.
Founded in 2004.
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: startup founders and entrepreneurs.
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.
“The Tech Dept don't make me feel stupid because they get what I'm trying to achieve - the final outcome, rather than just thinking about the tech. They do what we need on a long-term strategic level."
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™
The first month is £10,000 (held in escrow) after which you will have a detailed strategic technology plan and development budget. If you don't think it's worth the investment - or you don't like us - we'll return your money, no questions asked.
Assuming you want to proceed, we run further bootcamps from £10,000 a month and grow your business.
