The growth of creative and digital sectors in Liverpool

It’s been a difficult year, but it seems that despite the disruption of COVID 19, the creative and digital sectors are thriving in our hometown of Liverpool. Providing rich cultural history and one of the largest economies across the UK, Liverpool is a wonderful place for these industries.

The city council has recently endorsed plans to regenerate the renowned Baltic Triangle after it doubled its population over the past decade. Plans include supporting a new railway station to facilitate the success of the areas rapidly expanding innovation and computerized sectors.

The importance of these sectors has been emphasised during the pandemic. Creative and digital companies across the city have thrived, providing support through a variety of means, including the creation of essential facemasks and apps to aid organisations during these times of limited physical contact. The success of apps such as Glug and KwikQueue from businesses within Liverpool have put the city on the map as a source of innovation and advancement, even when faced with unforeseen challenges.

Whilst it may not seem it, now is the best time to move, or start, a business in Liverpool, but don’t take our word for it, take the word of the business leaders at the Napthens virtual roundtable. These moguls have pulled together to support tech based and innovation driven businesses through collaborations and ensuring there are funds available for those that need it.

With the provision of schemes such as the Future Fund, CBILS and Bounce back Loans, it’s never been a better time to consider moving your creative or digital business to Liverpool. Jayne Croft, an associate solicitor in Napthens corporate department in Liverpool, and a panellist of the roundtable, noted that “There’s a need for innovation, the city is very creative and we can certainly build more opportunities across the creative and digital sector”.
