Creative and digital boost thanks to Generator partnership

Two North East creative and digital firms have partnered up in a bid to boost the tech sector in the region, and encourage entrepreneurs to consider the area as a launch pad for start-ups.

Newcastle-based music development agency Generator has teamed up with Campus North, a co-working and event space for tech meet ups, start-ups and established businesses in Europe.

Campus North also offers hot-desking, co-working, meeting and teaching space every day, as well as hosting weekly events to educate and inspire creativity within the sector.

The partnership will draw on Generator’s experience and success of developing business in the sector with Campus North’s mission of assisting and growing start-ups in Tyneside’s digital community.

Businesses with the sector will now have a great deal more access to sector specialist business support, master classes and workshops.

Jim Mawdsley, CEO of Generator, said: “We are committed to growing the Creative and Digital Sector in the North East and are extremely keen to partner with other organisations that share that commitment but have the experience and practical knowledge that is essential for success.

“Generator has a strong track record in collaborating within the North East and wider with the intention of increasing the effectiveness of all its programmes.

“I believe that by joining forces with Campus North, as we have done with Sunderland Software City will only further underpin all of our ambition to make the North East a key Global centre for this thriving and rapidly expanding industry.’

Lyndsey Britton, co-founder of Campus North, added: "Campus North is all about supporting, promoting and accelerating digital entrepreneurship in the North East.

“We put the needs of the tech community at the heart of everything we do and are keen to work with others who share our vision and aims.

"This partnership with Generator will help ensure we're sharing and making the best use of knowledge, skills and resources to benefit start-ups, entrepreneurs and the north east as a whole."
