Next up in our Tech Nation 2016 series is the Liverpool tech cluster.
Liverpool’s gaming heritage, which stretches back to Psygnosis, and later Sony, is central to the cluster.
The city’s introduction of co-working spaces have helped the cluster to grow (52% GVA growth from 2010 to 2014), with IoT and connected devices, app and software development, and e-commerce among its specialisms.
Liverpool’s commercial and residential property rents are among the lowest in the country, making it real value for money for businesses. The Baltic Triangle, home to industry-focused school and college The Studio, is enjoying a revival as a hub for entrepreneurs.
The University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University attract some of the UK’s top talent, producing capable and employable graduates.
Tech and science incubators include the Liverpool Innovation Park, Liverpool Science Park, Merseybio and Launch 22, as well as Santander’s recently opened incubator for rapidly growing small businesses.
Liverpool Vision has supported digital companies, helping to set up Baltic Creative CIC, and networking initiatives such as kin2kin network and others including Creative Kitchen (lead by Studio Mashbo), DoES Liverpool, and the eHealth Cluster.
