Research from National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (NESTA) shows that the Trowbridge travel to work area is home to a creative cluster of innovative tech-based businesses. I want to work with local businesses and community leaders to cultivate the cluster and give a boost to the local economy. Trowbridge can be a cutting edge a hub for the digital industries of the future. 

I have already hosted Google and held an Access to Finance event as part of initiative, and there is much more to come. 

I am… 

  • talking with the Wiltshire Council Growth Hub to work TechTrowbridge into a future economic strategy 
  • planning an event to convene tech-based businesses from across the region with a connection to Trowbridge 
  • planning a jobs fair with a special TechTrowbridge section to promote the digital jobs of the future 
  • calling on the government to expand R&D investment
