Technology/FinTech North East Innovation Cluster

To help support the growing world of technology and fintech in the North East, we’ve teamed up with Dynamo North East and are working closely with them through our Innovation Managers to help drive innovation in this cluster.

Dynamo North East

Dynamo is a business-led organisation with the core mission of growing the North East tech economy through collaboration, innovation, skills and noise.

Our vision for the region is to have a world-class reputation as a hotspot for digital, data and technology.  We raise awareness of North East England as a great place to build a career in tech, as well as to live and work. We help local people and organisations thrive, build confidence, and showcase the great work already being done throughout the region.

We do this through:

  • Collaboration as we help people work together to achieve our shared ambition. Collaboration requires contacts and Dynamo creates opportunities for members to network and share with each other.
  • Sharing “what good looks like” and provide inspiration from national and international insight, to help our members to innovate together for the good of their organisations and the region.
  • Addressing the skills gap in the region. We help build the workforce for more and better jobs in tech and assist companies to upskill in order to increase their capacity to grow their business.
  • Celebrating local achievements, especially through the high-profile annual Dynamites awards and annual conference.
