We are Digital Lancashire. We are a community of accomplished professionals in the digital sector, who share the collective ambition of exposing the regions talents and accomplishments.
Since our formation in September 2016, we have already established strong regional connections with business owners, educational institutions and local authorities in the digital sector. As well as this, we continue to gain an enthusiastic following amongst digital sector professionals.
Our ambition is to continue to grow our community base, and achieve even greater recognition within the digital arena.
The ambition of Digital Lancashire is huge. For too long our many great digital businesses, our superb universities and the brilliant people in them have been hidden away. Not only do we want to shine a light on them regionally, nationally and internationally, we want to help them be the best they can and at the same time show them that Lancashire is a great place to work and live.
