Cornwall’s growing tech community has been featured in the 2016 UK Tech Nation report.
Cornwall’s Capital and surrounding areas gained the attention of the Tech Nation Team following the high response to its survey in late 2015.
Cornwall featured as an emerging cluster and ranked 2nd for growth in the UK with 153% Growth in Digital Turnover, exceeding Londons 101% (2010-2014).
“A rural location has traditionally been seen as a weakness. Cornwall is dissolving that urban myth, driven by superfast connectivity, a pipeline for delivering tech skills and a strong collaborative community.” Belinda Waldock
