South Yorkshire Mayor Oliver Coppard said: "Thanks to our entrepreneurs, world-class research universities and talent pool, South Yorkshire is not just attracting but creating high-quality tech companies and high-value jobs. Innovation is part of South Yorkshire's DNA and we are going to make sure our region flourishes by working closely with stars of the sector to create an action plan for tech growth in our region.

"Digital and tech are the lifeblood of our economy; increasingly, every barrier is a digital or technology barrier, so it's a vital sector for the whole of South Yorkshire.

 "The ecosystem we are building here, and the assets we already have in South Yorkshire, will mean those businesses and people who do relocate will thrive here – creating more value for them, the region, and the UK."
