Tech Nation has endorsed Oxford Saïd alumni for their exceptional tech talent and leadership.
Akanksha Anand, Tulsi Parida, Shweta Honavar and Sarah Young are amongst those who have received the Exceptional Talent Visa in digital technology.
Tech Nation endorses visa applications for overseas individuals who show exceptional talent or promise in the digital technology field. The UK network for ambitious tech entrepreneurs is allocated only 200 visas each year. Launched in 2014, the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa in digital technology is flexible. It allows recipients the freedom to work anywhere in the UK without being tied to a specific company or location and can be granted for a stay of over five years. The alumni have been awarded the visas in recognition of their expertise, leadership and potential contributions to the UK digital sector.
Akanksha Anand (2017-18 MBA alumna) described what the award has meant for her career: ‘The Tech Nation visa has empowered me to create the exponential impact that I wanted to be able to create. I was so grateful for this opportunity to be a voice shaping the narrative within the UK and global “Tech for Good” industry.’
