Global Tech Connect

The Alliance of UK-based Bilateral Startup Programmes

About us

Global Tech Connect (GTC) unites UK-based international startup programmes and bilateral organisations to better support tech companies from their national ecosystems – those looking to enter, learn from or scale in the UK. By sharing knowledge, experience and expertise we strengthen ties between countries, expand startup networks, increase opportunities for entrepreneurs, and foster international economic growth.

Partner Organisations

Our Founding Partners are Advantage Austria; the British Croatian Chamber of Commerce; La FrenchTech; UK Israel Tech Hub; TechItalia; r10ventures (Romania); Innosuisse (Switzerland), and Hackquarters (Turkey). We have since been joined by Business Finland, de:hub (Germany), and the Bulgarian Expansion Bridge.


Participation is open to other international programmes that demonstrate an ability to support startups from their home countries, and which share the aims and values of Global Tech Connect.
