Gemba joins the International Growth Programme by Tech Nation, a growth platform for UK tech companies that has witnessed 1 out of 3 UK tech unicorns graduate from one of its programmes. Tech Nation alumni include companies such as Revolut and Deliveroo.
In line with the ‘Made in the UK, sold to the world’ export strategy announced by the UK Government this week, the programme is part of the UK Government’s Digital Trade Network, an initiative to support UK tech businesses in the Asia Pacific region. The region’s digital economy is expected to grow to £222 billion by 2025 and is an increasingly important participant in the global digital ecosystem, despite recent Covid related challenges.
Gemba was among only 22 companies selected from 190 applicants as being representative of the UK’s best tech scaleups. It was assessed for its aptitude to scale internationally by technology and trade specialists, with the goal of creating jobs and economic growth in the UK and internationally.
“The programme will help fulfil our potential in a booming Southeast Asian market, while our solution for reskilling teams in real-time makes the distance irrelevant. Singapore can now be as close as London” said Gemba CEO Nathan Robinson.
Southeast Asia is also one of the most vulnerable areas to climate change. Gemba aligns with the region’s commitment to adopt technology such as VR at scale to facilitate reaching net-zero emissions by 2050 as it cuts down the need for business travel for meetings, training and events, saving an average of 1 tonne of carbon emissions for a flight not taken.
Gemba offers customised and on-demand virtual learning that galvanises global teams. It solves the biggest challenge faced by transformational leaders, the roll-out of compelling training at scale, in a controlled and cost-effective way. For more information, visit, www.theleadershipnetwork.com.
