The digital economy in Teesside is worth £174m annually and £62m to Middlesbrough alone, which comes as a surprise to many people. Much of this success is thanks to the pioneering work of Teesside University and its partners in supporting the innovative Digital City project for the last ten years. Digital City was set up in 2004 to 'to create a vibrant, successful and self-sustaining supercluster based on the digital technologies, digital media and creative sectors and their enabling capabilities' and over 300 ‘tech’ companies have been created (many by Teesside University students) as a result.
The new Digital City Director Rob Earnshaw will be the special guest of Teesside University Technology and Enterprise Club (2Tec) on Tuesday 21st February when he will outline his ambitious and exciting vision for the next 10 years of its growth.
Come and hear what Rob has to say and find out where he thinks Teesside’s digital economy will be in 2027!
There will be cake...
