Tech

A region with an energetic, flourishing tech sector


filled with entrepreneurial drive and spirit

Cornwall is a region that thrives on innovation and embraces creativity. It is home to forward-thinking creative technology businesses, whose expertise is sought out by companies across the globe.

The companies that makeup Cornwall’s Creativetech cluster are ahead of the curve, capitalising on the many benefits that the region has to offer. High growth businesses such as Crowdfunder and Headforwards are flourishing in Cornwall and competing on a global scale. Cornwall’s Superfast Fibre Broadband capabilities allow operations to be more agile and more flexible, whilst organisations delivering high calibre education, such Falmouth University, the UK’s number one arts university, feed a rich and diverse talent pool which is continually growing. Internationally renowned, the specialist creative multi-arts institution propagates originality and challenges its students to think creatively. As a result, the university is producing the next generation designers and developers that will play a vital role in the digitalised economy of tomorrow.

Thanks to organisations such as Software Cornwall, Tech South West, and Kernow DAT, creative businesses in Cornwall can become part of a community of like-minded professionals that are willing to collaborate and share knowledge to aid business growth. The ability for the creative industries to innovate and create is enhanced by Cornwall’s dramatic landscape and the rural region’s ability to offer escapism at every angle, allowing the mind to rejuvenate.

Ingenuity is deep-rooted in Cornwall’s history and it remains an inherent part of its rich and dynamic community. Our aim is to help propel an industry that is naturally excelling itself and amplify the potential impact that Cornwall can have on a rapidly growing, global creative technology industry.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of expanding your business into Cornwall, we have the team and tools to help your relocation become as seamless as possible.

We have the perfect ingredients; it’s time to showcase them.
