Breaking New Ground – How is the North including the Isle of Man defining the future of Digital Media?

Barclays Bank, NorthInvest and Isle of Media have come together to hold two events to showcase the creativity, innovation and sheer brilliance of the Digital Media sector in the North. As highlighted in Nesta’s Creative Nation, creative capitals should work together to grow their creative industries.

The Northern Powerhouse including the Isle of Man is a magnet for creative and digital content and distribution industries and the home to many creative entrepreneurs.

With debate around the move of Channel 4 out of London, and the success of Salford as a media hub, media, digital innovation and content creation are all areas where we as a region and its entrepreneurs excel.

In early May Barclays, NorthInvest and IsleofMedia are hosting networking events in Leeds and Manchester. We aim to make more noise, and petition for Digital Media to be a core stream for the Northern Powerhouse, to bring increased investment, jobs and skills to the North, by hosting key speakers and exhibitors to share their latest exciting media projects.

Leading finance, business and creative experts will discuss grants, business planning, relocating to the region and government assistance available in the North and Isle of Man for businesses, start-ups and

Got a bright creative idea, launching a new business unit or need to take you business to the next level – this is the place to begin to make it a reality.
