Over the last two years, we’ve seen more coverage about the Leeds digital and startup scenes, including on Sky News, The Guardian and other national titles, than ever before. We’ve become better as a city about talking about the innovative companies and talented individuals working in Leeds.

Having key employers such as Sky Betting & Gaming, NHS Digital, Rockstar Games and Callcredit, plus digital agencies like Stickeyes, Epiphany and twentysix, all helps to raise the profile of the city. With four universities and tech hubs such as Futurelabs and Platform, the city is producing incredible talent to keep the digital sector growing.
