Leeds City Region Digital Technology Sector Study

West Yorkshire Combined Authority

Kada Research was commissioned by the Leeds City Region (LCR) Inward Investment Team to assess the comparative, relative and emerging competitive advantages of the LCR digital and technology sector. This report highlights the key strengths and assets in every part of
the City Region and its dynamic, diverse and well known digital offer. This has informed an
investment proposition stressing its key features to appeal to stakeholders and investors.

The study objectives included a requirement to review official statistics highlighting the scale and breadth of the digital and technology sector in LCR including its significant specialisms and numbers employed. This included an analysis and review of evidence of significant clusters of companies within each of the key sub sectors and nascent activity areas.

We identified key growth trends and opportunities within the sector, highlighting the distinct infrastructure advantages of the LCR digital and technologies sector including a review of large corporates that are undertaking core digital and technology related activities.

This intelligence was to be used to compile some marketing collateral that support and strengthen the LCR value proposition and showcase the LCR’s competitive advantage to a global marketplace.
