Tech and Digital
Benjamin leads Expectation State’s work in tech and digital, working with our focus states to support and reflect tech and digital opportunity and increase levels of investment through policy development and partnerships.
Prior to joining Expectation State, Ben worked in technology and technology startups for eighteen years, holding roles at a variety of organisations. He co-founded 3beards, an events company serving London’s tech, creative and entrepreneurial communities before being recruited to the role of Deputy CEO of TechCity, a UK government-backed organisation that was formed to foster the growth of the burgeoning tech hub around the Old Street area of East London.
After his time with TechCity Ben returned to the private sector and co-founded a new software business. Ben exited Unicorn Hunt, a startup recruitment platform, in 2016 after selling it to a Canadian investment company.
