Following the recent launch of Tech Nation, we will be running a series of profile pieces on each of the digital clusters featured in the report.
The first cluster profiled in the series is Liverpool, a city with a long-established gaming heritage. This heritage has attracted very large companies in the past, with Sony taking over Psygnosis, (a racing game development company) in 1984.
Since then, Liverpool’s games development sector has continued to grow and was identified as one of the cluster’s most notable sectors. Alongside Games Development, both Software Development and Advertising & Marketing were the top three most prominent types of digital business in the Tech Nation report.
With that said, IoT and HealthTech are also becoming more and more popular with young developers and entrepreneurs in the area. Kevin McManus, CEO of Liverpool Vision, is excited for the future, commenting, “Liverpool has the beginnings of an eHealth and tele-care cluster. We have a chance to steal a march on other UK cities in this field.”
