Our members know all about the challenges of starting a new business. Whether it’s advice/contacts to gain funding, insight that eases the inevitable growing pains or finding the right partnerships, CW’s extensive membership boasts many individuals that have been through the start-up lifecycle more than once.
For scale ups or SMEs focused on growth, the key is extending your reach so you can find and exploit those critical growth business opportunities. Under the CW umbrella, you’ll have access to over 1000 businesses and organisations, each looking to build new working relationships with anyone that can help them achieve their objectives.
The largest technology brands in the world are CW members, alongside many companies that are giants in their own industrial sector. CW provides these with bespoke Innovation Programmes that accelerate R&D, personal development and knowledge sharing opportunities for all employees and a ready-made platform for talent acquisition.
The technology market is fundamentally global, so CW is proudly international in its membership and its outlook. CW helps international companies successfully and efficiently navigate the UK tech scene, from facilitating open collaboration to finding new opportunities. Equally UK companies can be supported to go global.
In the fast-changing tech landscape, there’s no substitute for hearing directly from the people shaping and steering our industry. Not only are we known for sharing the latest ideas, but also challenging debate, helping our members to learn from one another. Our knowledge sharing platforms include events, conferences, the resources library and the popular CW Journal.
Everything is interlinked and no company is an island. So, having a forum where you can easily meet everyone in your ecosystem is a game-changer. Whether they be upstream or downstream of your place in the value chain, making those connections helps build your own powerful network.
Great ideas need to be heard loud and clear by the people that matter. CW helps organisations build their public persona. Through CW events, sponsorship and speaking opportunities and online and print editorial opportunities, you can ensure that you build brand awareness by targeting the key individuals really at the heart of the industry.
Now, more than ever, recruiting and retaining top talent is the major strategic factor in whether a knowledge-based company is successful or not. CW can help you get your recruitment message out to the people with the right experience, the right motivation and the right aspiration to boost your operation.
