I didn’t think we’d be here, but here we are. In my capacity as a Policy Fellow at COADEC, the tech policy body for the UK’s tech startups, I have written a plain-English guide for tech and digital businesses to use to prepare for a No Deal Brexit. While the guidance is aimed at startups and scaleups, the advice is applicable to all tech businesses regardless of where they are on their journey.
RSVP to our roadshows
The guide is accompanied by a series of roadshows across the UK, run by COADEC in partnership with Tech Nation and the UK Tech Cluster Group, where we’re explaining the issues at hand and advising you what you need to do to get your tech business ready. The tour will visit Liverpool (30th Sep), Manchester (2nd Oct), Ipswich (3rd Oct), Middlesbrough (4th Oct), Edinburgh (8th Oct), Sheffield (9th Oct), Bristol (10th Oct), Cardiff (10th Oct), Reading (11th Oct), and Belfast (18th Oct).
All roadshows are free, but please RSVP your spot.
Let me know what you think of the guide and whether or not it’s been helpful to you. And as always, if you’d like a deeper dive into the issues we raised in the guidance, you can visit my side blog at https://afterbrexit.tech
Hats off to @Coadec for taking the time to discuss the potential impact of a No Deal Brexit on tech / digital startups & scaleups in Newcastle this morning.

We are people of enormous power and influence over the open web. As a tech policy and regulation specialist, I empower you to use that power wisely. I support digital professionals in understanding the political, legal, and regulatory issues which impact their work, assist them to participate constructively in the regulatory sphere, and represent them directly to governments. I advocate for an open web built around international standards of human rights, privacy, accessibility, and freedom of expression. I fight for edge cases, the little guys, and the big pictures. Let’s talk.
