Tech North has spent three days this week in Lancaster getting to understand the digital economy in the area. Community Engagement Manager, Jazz Hanley has been keen to revisit the area following his attendance at the successful launch of Digital Lancaster back in January.
The visit facilitated by Digital Lancashire included a day of meetings at Lancaster University, including meeting faculty heads and campus-based businesses, a day in Lancaster visiting the city’s businesses at workspaces including White Cross, CityLab and The Storey, and finally a trip to the country to meet B4RN (Broadband for the Rural North).
Digital Lancashire MD Stewart Townsend said, “This is another step to building on the rich foundations currently here and creating a nationally recognised digital city. Lancaster has a host of superb digital businesses, a world-leading research University, incredible connections around the UK and a historic city with a great culture that just needs to show itself off and grow. Digital Lancashire and Digital Lancaster will do all they can to make this a reality.”
