In 2016, research was published that identified the cluster around Silverstone, an area spanning as far as Birmingham, Oxford, Cambridge and Luton, in which approximately 4,500 businesses reside who specialise in advanced engineering, electronics and software. As a result of this research, the Silverstone Technology Cluster (STC) organisation was founded.

The STC exists to help the businesses identified in the report, specifically in the three key areas of promotion, support and thought leadership.

Promotion aims to raise the profile of STC members and their capabilities at a national and international level. Support focuses on business growth and encouraging and helping businesses to scale up and lift themselves to the next level. For thought leadership, the STC has formed Special Interest Groups (SIGs) as a proven way to bring like-minded companies together to network, debate the latest developments in the industry and seek out new commercial opportunities.

Bringing like-minded companies together and encouraging them to collaborate is very much at the heart of what the STC does, and as a not-for-profit organisation supported by founding members such as Silverstone Park, Barclays, Grant Thornton, EMW Law, Hexagon, Aylesbury Vale District Council and South Northamptonshire Council, it aims to deliver what its membership requires, without chasing any political or financial agendas.

Here is what our members have to say

The STC is a very dynamic and innovative industry body that represents a variety of interesting and dynamic companies. Even though we are located 45 minutes away from Silverstone we actively participate and benefit from both the virtual and physical events they organise. We like the fact that the STC is not just Motorsport or Automotive, but includes technological ventures that we might not come across in a single industry organisation
Neil Morgan – Managing Director at Danecca Goodfabs
Mackart Additive is now in its third year with the STC. The professionalism the STC Team provide reflects 100% in the quality of membership. We’ve secured new opportunities with fellow members, repeat business, and even formed a strong business partnership. A fantastic support network. A great place to be.
Steven McCarthy – Managing Director and Principal Technical Engineer at Mackart Engineering
Membership of Silverstone Technology Cluster has provided a valuable cohort of like-minded people and businesses to share our software technology with, through specifically tailored networking, leading to a healthy exchange of best practice. STC generously provides introductions and opportunities to participate on the larger, invaluable business platforms.
