HOME > About this Site

This site represents an attempt to track and classify the numerous high tech startups established in Cambridge and surrounding villages - the so-called "Silicon Fen" area.


For the initial iteration, at least, the term "startup" has been limited to companies incorporated within the decade since 2001, and listings have been restricted to officially established companies and partnerships.

While there is of course no need or obligation to formalise the structure of a business, especially at an early stage, the disclosure requirements - even for nascent businesses - provide at least some measure of insight.

The aim was to document companies working in high growth areas such as the web and digital media, mobile and apps, software, infrastructure and comms hardware, digital marketing and advertising, and associated consulting and financial services


The listings on this site have been broadly divided into "Industry Sectors", a list of which can be found in the left-hand navigation.

Each listing shows the official name of the company (linked to its homepage), its date of incorporation ("Founded in:"), as well as a brief description of its main business. Additional links provide one-click access to relevant background information, including its Duedil profile, Crunchbase listing (if available) plus links to its official blog, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn pages.

For example:

Memorable Domains Ltd (Founded: 2009)
Specialises in the sale of high quality, descriptive generic domain names. Maintains a portfolio of close to 7,000 .co.uk domains covering 200+ B2B and B2C markets and industries.

We hope to expand the coverage of High Tech Cambridge to include information and resources relevant to startups, such as potential sources of funding or advice, networking groups, office locations etc.

In the meantime, if you are aware of a company that fits the criteria outlined above but which has not yet been listed, please contact us so that we can add it.
