It is already hard enough for the UK's most exciting digital businesses to find enough skilled talent to keep pace with their rapid growth. We all know that the sector has exploded and that it will continue to represent the lion's share of our growth over the coming years. 

Even before Brexit business leaders have faced a rapidly increasing skills shortage but I worry that this will be exacerbated following the triggering of Article 50. 

Governments subsidise raw materials and negotiate trade treaties when industries are threatened by lack of access to raw materials, it might be time for policymakers to start planning on how to sustain our tech sector's growth by making it easier to hire the right talent whether that is homegrown or not. 

Just a thought...
