About us

Silverstone Technology Cluster (STC) is a not-for-profit cluster support organisation for advanced engineering, electronics and software businesses in the wider Silverstone area. The organisation aids its members with promotion, support and thought leadership.

STC aims to promote the cluster nationally and internationally, highlighting the power of the network of these highly innovative businesses. To date, STC has hosted several delegations from China and France, next to interest from countries like Italy, Singapore, Malaysia and South Korea. Significantly, it has also engaged with organisations such as Heathrow Airport, BAE Systems and the UK government who are all keen for STC to be the conduit to access the problem-solving prowess of the companies in the network.

In addition, STC aids companies within the cluster to promote themselves to each other. As the cluster is uniquely multi-sectorial (motorsport is only around 20% of what the businesses do) bringing companies together and encouraging them to collaborate is a large part of what the STC does.

STC offers several business growth programmes and events. Most notably, it runs SME Advisory Board and Mentoring programmes in partnership with Be the Business. Together with British Business Bank it hosts a series of Access to Finance events, and it joined forces with Amazon Web Services to deliver an Innovation programme. In addition, it organises various events and webinars.

Thought Leadership
STC has set up Special Interest Groups (SIG) formed by leaders of our member companies. The SIGs are a proven way to accelerate technological development around a chosen topic through effective peer-to-peer discussion, which not only serves to raise awareness of the capabilities in the cluster, but further aids collaboration and the sharing of good practice. Currently, there are four SIGs:
• Digital & Advanced Manufacturing
• Future Mobility
• Design, Simulation & Metrology
• Wearable Technology.

Since its inception in January 2017, membership has grown to over 150 companies, while showcase events like the STC Annual Conference and hosting the VIP Lounge at the Advanced Engineering Show help to further raise the profile of the companies in the cluster.

STC was founded in 2017 by founding members Barclays, Buckinghamshire Council, EMW, Grant Thornton, Hexagon, Silverstone Park and West Northamptonshire Council.
