Cambridge is an internationally renowned hotbed of innovation and entrepreneurship, and its "Silicon Fen" moniker is well-earned. Over 250 high-tech startups have been established in Cambridge in the last 10 years - 19 of them in 2011!
In contrast to London's vibrant digital and creative startup scene, however, much of the attention locally has been directed towards "hard science" fields such as microprocessors, pharma/biotech and cleantech. This has left sectors such as web and online, mobile apps, digital marketing and software development arguably a little overshadowed.
This site is a modest attempt to redress the balance. It profiles the 250+ Cambridge high tech startups formed since 2001.
