Tech likes startups. Also they’re focused on engineering.

Also maybe move to the US - i hate to say that as I love Europe, but Europe tends to be less welcoming to new companies and the environment doesn’t foster them. It’s hard to explain, but you get my drift. Silicon Valley clusters in the Bay for a reason - access to capital ($ and human), ideas and atmosphere of like minded individuals. I’m sure there’s other places in Europe with similar dynamics, like isnt Cambridge or Oxford like that? Areas by universities tend to have more tech given they’re close to the latest research.

Planning to move back to the NE, probably NY. But was hopping to move into a role here in London then transfer across after a few years.
