Home to some of the fastest-growing technology companies in North America, you can find made in London content and products in the video games you play, ATM’s you take cash out of, Hollywood feature films you watch, and orders you place at Tim Horton’s.
London has strengths in information communication technology (ICT), digital media, software as a service (SaaS), game development, eCommerce, and financial technology. 350+ companies employ over 9,000 people in this sector, who are developing products that influence many other industries – from enhancing medical procedures and manufacturing processes to making everyday financial transactions easier and secure.
