MANY of the greatest innovations stem from the cross-section of sectors. Today, an abbreviation of almost any market can be attached to the word "tech" to create an entirely new sub-sector: HealthTech, FinTech, EdTech, SpaceTech, MedTech, and so on.
These crossovers have the potential to entirely reimagine day-to-day life.
Organisations like Business Durham, NETPark, the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) and the multiple Innovate UK Catapult network in the region, as well as top-tier universities, have collectively created a high-value ecosystem that nurtures business growth for the national and international stage.
As a result of existing high-value ecosystem top-tier universities, many companies operating at the cutting edge or fringe of their sector, who are sure to see growth on national and international stages, are emerging from or moving to the North-East.
