Welcome to our Creative Digital City!
Plymouth is a creative city with a proud track record and growing international reputation for creative digital and immersive tech. We have come together through iMayflower to ensure that Plymouth makes the most of this platform for the benefit of current and future generations living, studying and working here. 
 
We are working together to design practical career pathways, to retain talented graduates and make it easier to start and grow creative digital businesses here in Plymouth. We’re also developing a much more connected and networked city, where all sectors can engage with and benefit from creative tech, along with access to innovative finance models.  
 
We believe Plymouth can create a new creative ecology where people, projects and new ideas thrive and where our collective success is greater than the sum of its parts.  

So, what do we have to show you?
