Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Entrepreneur Wales Awards Talk Tech with Tech Dragons


The Entrepreneur Wales Awards are excited to welcome Tech Dragons on board as partners for the awards. We grabbed 5 minutes with Nicholas Fearn, Editor of Tech Dragons, to chat about the tech scene in Wales…

For those who don’t know, what is Tech Dragons?

Tech Dragons is an online resource and publication designed to promote Wales’s growing technology industry, having launched at Digital 2015 back in early june.

Rich content is at the forefront of it, sporting hubs where you can submit information about tech start-ups as well as any upcoming events and jobs. It also actively publishes industry news, interviews, features and columns, all of which are edited by myself.

How important do you think technology is going to be for building Wales’ economic profile?

Wales has always been a strong hub for industry. Back in the 19th and 20th centuries, this was led by coal mines and then the steel works. But, the fact is, these are mostly gone and in demise. You only have to look at the fact that Tata Steel is going through troubled times.
