Gerard Grech

Advisor and former founding chief executive - Tech Nation (acquired by the Founders Forum Group)

Gerard Grech is the former founding Chief Executive of Tech Nation before it was acquired by the Founders Forum Group in 2023. Tech Nation (and previously as Tech City) went on to shape Europe’s most productive digital ecosystem, creating dozens of nationwide programs that helped grow some of Britain’s biggest tech stars, from Monzo to Skyscanner, with over 1300 companies in between. A third of all tech unicorns ever created in the UK’s history graduated from one of Tech Nation’s programs, fuelling a 5x increase in the number of UK cities with a tech unicorn or more and securing the UK’s digital leadership position in Europe. The company was the 9th fastest growing company in the UK public sector in 2022. 
He is also a member of the UK Government's Digital Economy Council and the World Economic Forum's Digital Board. He was recognised for his outstanding contribution to the FinTech industry at the FinTech Awards London 2023. 

Previously, he worked at the intersection of mobile, digital and media in New York, London and Paris, developing and forging ground breaking partnerships and digital products with content and social networks such as Facebook and Warner Music at Nokia, France Telecom, Blackberry and Orange. He started his career in the music business.
