The impact of Brexit on the tech sector

Britain’s EU referendum and decision to vote Leave has had a profound effect on the country’s political and economic landscape. Britain’s tech sector – proportionally the largest of any country in the G20 – obviously won’t escape the impact of such a momentous change.

The vast majority of tech businesses wanted to remain in the EU. They now have to adjust to a post-Brexit landscape, even if none of us is entirely sure what that will look like yet. But tech businesses are all about adapting to changing circumstances, and their can-do attitude will see them through even these difficult times.

So based on what we do know, what is Brexit likely to mean for Britain’s tech sector? We think the impact can best be compared to ripples in a pond, affecting virtually every business over time.
