South West Leaders Survey

understanding the essential attributes that make successful founders of the future

The Attributes For Success?

To celebrate TechSPARK's annual TT50 List, we’ve teamed up with Antidote Communications to uncover what makes a successful founder and leader of a tech company in the Southwest.

We know the Southwest is one of the most productive tech clusters in Europe and we get why people choose the Southwest as the ideal location to start a tech business. The quality of life, the relative proximity to London, the academic institutions, the government support, the great coffee.
But, one area that hasn’t been explored to date is the people leading these tech businesses. We want to identify, not only the ingredients that make a tech leader, but go deeper – find out what makes them tick? What do they think about key issues? What do they like and dislike? Why are we doing this and what do we hope to achieve? We want to celebrate this years TT50 List and inspire the next generation of tech leaders.
Antidote Communications is therefore excited to launch the inaugural Southwest Leaders Survey.
