Acquired by Generator in 2015, Digital Union, seeks to build, represent, and lead the North East digital cluster and has become the largest collective of creative digital businesses in the region enabling collaboration, business support, mentoring, business development opportunities, marketing assistance, and more.
The aim is to ensure that national and international business leaders are engaged with the North East sector and champion and facilitate a collaborative approach to working in the North East.
We raise the profile of members and the sector as a whole by delivering effective regional and national media strategies to highlight successes, leading to increased media coverage, further business and the attraction and retention of talent.
We are heavily committed to representing the sector in various forums including; local and national Government and national bodies such as Innovate UK, Tech City, Tech North and Sector Skills Councils.
We aim to bridge the gap between the digital, creative, tech, and education sectors, working collaboratively with Further and Higher Education decision makers so they are fully engaged with the sector, helping to reduce the skills gap.
We run regular workshops, seminars, and networking events throughout the year, along with an annual conference with an awards ceremony to celebrate the sectors achievements.
