The creative and digital sectors have grown faster in the Sheffield City Region than anywhere else in the UK. This is thanks to competitive property and staff costs, a supportive business environment, the research and teaching of our two leading Universities, and a large pool of talent.
The city of Sheffield has a dedicated digital campus which provides inspiring accommodation, and the region is part of TechNorth, a government-funded drive to boost the North’s digital economy.
The Government offers tax benefits for investors in early-stage digital businesses.
Digital and creative companies based in our region include:
More then 35,000 employees
Around 6,900 university students on related courses
A 350-mile fibre optic network reaching 40,000 businesses
