Talk: Cornwall and the Digital Revolution - The Software Story
27 July, Thursday, 7.30 pm Location: The Poly, Falmouth
Cornwall is enjoying a Digital boom. West
Cornwall is the second fastest growing digital hub in the country. There are
over 680 tech companies in Cornwall, supporting more than 1,300 highly paid
jobs - with advertised average salaries of £34,367. These companies range
across artificial intelligence, the internet of things, robots, cloud-based
services, virtual reality and drone filming.
The Poly is pleased to announce the launch of a series of talks aimed at examining this phenomenon. We will invite speakers from across the digital, creative and entrepreneurial sectors to examine the implications. Is it too soon to be talking of Silicon Kernow or Silicon Coast? How do we really compare with creative hubs elsewhere? What does this digital boom do for traditional sectors such as tourism, the arts, agriculture or fishing? Who are the local stars? What will happen when the European grants dry up?
The Poly are delighted that Belinda Waldock will launch this series with an overview of the Cornish Software sector. She is a director and co-founder of Software Cornwall, a high growth cluster of businesses, education and support organisations dedicated to connecting, promoting and supporting the growing software community in Cornwall.
