AMAZING REGION, AMAZING OPPORTUNITIES

THE NORTH EAST OF ENGLAND

The North East of England is rapidly becoming home to a thriving Information Technology and Digital Ecosystem. Whether you're thinking of starting a business, growing a business, moving a business to the region, raising capital, developing a career, looking for other companies to work with, or just want to find out whats going on, then TECHNORTHEAST is your jumping off point, your front door to the North East's Information Technology and Digital Ecosystem. 

Building on a rich history of world-class innovation and global success, the North East of England is home to five prominent universities, two national centres for data science and ageing, and a thriving ecosystem of Digital Technology companies.

The North East was at the forefront of the industrial revolution and in that spirit it has embraced the technology revolution. Outside of London its technology sector is experiencing the fastest growth in the UK and in a recent Growth Cities report the North East ranked higher than the South East and most other regions on having a great work life balance, great cost of living, great income distribution, great universities, and a great working environment.  

Many of the tech companies located in the North East such as Sage, Accenture, DXC, SaleCycle, Partnerize, ZeroLight (and the key development functions for the UK Government’s DWP and HMRC) are a driving force for digital innovation, world-class technology expertise, and a highly skilled workforce. These companies and others provide the basis for a thriving network that supports innovation and continued business success. It is an ecosystem ripe for investment and economic growth.
