Creative collaboration secures cluster status.
- Gaining #TechNation status was not simply the result of active campaigning by local business leaders in 2014. It was also the result of hard work over the last few years by many in the community to build the city's reputation as a centre for tech and creative innovation. If these people share a common goal, it is to show the world that Norwich is open for business - able attract and retain both talent and investment.
A strong tech community
- Tech City UK identified a number of key strengths in the Norwich cluster. In particular, it praised the strength of its local networks. These include Sync Norwich, SyncDevelopHER, Norfolk Developers, Hot Source and the Norfolk Indy Games Developers group - you can find them all on Meetup. There is also a branch of Young Rewired State Hyperlocal, which is encouraging the next generation of coders.
