Meet Nine of Aberdeen’s Coolest Technology Companies
The Granite City hosts a variety of interesting startups and is rapidly becoming a hub for tech innovation.
While Aberdeen is famous for being the hub for Britain’s oil and gas sector, the city is now redefining itself as a haven for technology companies and continues to build a reputation as a great city to do business.
Just like Edinburgh and Glasgow, Aberdeen hosts many exciting young startups focusing on a range of areas, including Marine technology and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). And the city is growing. The recent Aberdeen City Deal is helping to broaden the city’s economic base with investment in projects supporting food, drink and agriculture, life sciences, tourism, digital and entrepreneurship in the wake of Covid-19.
Right at the heart of this growth is digital technology. A recent Regional Economic Strategy published by Aberdeenshire council said that, despite coronavirus, its vision is to “take account of changing economic drivers”, including climate change, becoming Net Zero and the increasing pace of technology.
“These drivers have not changed despite the pandemic (indeed the case is even stronger),” the council said.
Published last week, Mark Logan’s Tech Ecosystem Review suggested the creation of a nationwide network of ‘tech scaler’ and recommended these be housed in six cities across Scotland, “for example Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee, Stirling, and Inverness.”
It’s good to champion Scottish startups and the country’s vibrant technology sector, and Aberdeen has a big selection to choose from. Here are nine of the coolest technology companies Aberdeen has to offer.
