Growing strength for Norwich Digital tech sector according to Tech City Report

Lynsey Sweales, SocialB

Digital tech businesses are at the heart of the UK economy and are playing an important role in driving growth.  Norwich has some amazing organisations doing great things and as part of the latest report, Norwich is on the map again as a top Tech City.

Although this is great news, Norwich and Norfolk still has a lot of work to do as a region.

Weaknesses for the region (from the report) include low sector awareness, weak digital infrastructure and limited access to finance.  

Benefits include access to commercial property, local networks and talent education.

There may still be the perception of a lack of internet connectivity, slow connection links to the rest of the UK, etc, but we as businesses need to change this perception.  Norwich has received great PR as a great place to work (recent Guardian article) but as businesses, it's time to make it a great place to do business too.
