Ed Bartlett, CEO and co-founder of Kykloud, vendor of SaaS mobile surveying and condition assessment tools for the surveying and construction industry, joined other leading UK technology businesses at Tech at the Palace, a gathering of digital entrepreneurs held at Buckingham Palace earlier this week. The London event, highlighting the rising contribution of technology firms to UK employment and export opportunities, was hosted by The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duke of York.
Kykloud, set up in 2011 by Ed and Nick Graham (post), now employs 16, boasts several of the UK’s top surveying businesses amongst its clients, and last month launched Kykloud ANZ – a dedicated business division focussed on Australasia and New Zealand (post). Ed said:
“It is great to see members of the Royal household taking a genuine interest in UK technology industry and its contribution to the economy. Whilst I appreciate some of the technology on show may have been unfamiliar to them, they seemed to have a real interest in what it was we do and the opportunities technology businesses present, asking pertinent questions and getting hands-on involved in some product demonstrations.”
