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."

Helen O'Donnell
Children's University

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

After The Tech Dept

  • You have an expert tech team working for you

  • One point of contact from strategy to code

  • A robust technology plan and platform

  • You’re focusing on your main skills

  • You have a long-term partner helping you achieve your mission

Here's how it works

Understand

Book a call with us so we can learn more about you. And find out if we’re a cultural fit for each other. We aim to work with people for the long term.

Get on The Tech Bootcamp™

We become your tech brain, thinking strategically from CTO and Technical Director level - to Implementation through Design, Build, Tech Infrastructure and robust Project Management. We can even help with R&D tax credits.

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.

Handover

We get it - 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.
