The Swansea TechHub in a not-for-profit organisation designed to nurture new digital talent, and is one of only seven around the world — and the only one in the UK outside London.

As well as providing a “co-working” space where software developers, hi-tech entrepreneurs and researchers can collaborate on projects, it is planning to organise training and mentoring for people wanting to start their own digital business. Swansea TechHub was founded by three young entrepreneurs — Adam Curtis, Matt Warren and Paul Harwood.
