How to become a Cambridge Norwich Tech Corridor ambassador

28th January 2019

Businesses and thought leaders wishing to be a part of the Cambridge Norwich Tech Corridor can sign up to our free Ambassador initiative

Our Ambassadors help celebrate and promote the Tech Corridor within the  region and beyond, as well as having the opportunity to play an active role in our programme of activities to drive growth.

Becoming an Ambassador is also a chance for companies to use the growth of the Tech Corridor to put their own businesses in a positive, holistic spotlight and connect with a like-minded, motivated ecosystem of local firms.

What our ambassadors say

MIGSOLV'S David Manning

David Manning,  managing director of cloud, connectivity and data centre experts, MIGSOLV, is one of the Tech Corridor ambassadors.

He said: “Becoming an ambassador seemed a perfect fit. Not only are we proud to be located in Norwich but, as a data centre, it offers us a lot of advantages. I’m looking forward to using our experience to demonstrate to businesses outside our region just what can and is being achieved here.”

Another firm to join the scheme is technical recruiter TEC Partners.

“We were proud to be involved in the first Tech Corridor meet up and workshops which took place at Hethel Technology Park back in 2018,” said the company’s commercial director Dan Benson.

“The Tech Corridor presents an exciting opportunity for innovation and collaborative thinking and we are in a unique position. Now in our fourth year, our three founders set out to disrupt the traditional recruitment market by offering bespoke and highly technical recruitment solutions to our clients

“The initiative provides a platform for key businesses across the region to engage and discuss the technological challenges and skills required to carry us into the next decade and beyond.

“We are building specialist teams who focus on Big Data, AI, Machine Learning, Automation and the cross over between Science, Engineering and the more traditional Information Technology space, and it is this expertise that we want to bring into the Tech Corridor, which is why we are excited to be involved within the Talent Taskforce Special Interest Group.

“TEC Partners are passionate ambassadors and have also recently been named as one of the region’s ‘ones to watch’ as part of the Future50 2019, and we look forward to sharing our knowledge and experience with the group.”
