What’s the secret behind Leeds’ thriving tech ecosystem, for world leading companies and hot start-ups?

About this event

Leeds City Region is the birthplace of many successful businesses. Marks & Spencer’s roots are in Leeds Kirkgate Market. Next also started life in Leeds – initially as a gentleman’s tailors. Meanwhile, Yorkshire Tea began as a Harrogate-based family business in 1886.



In recent times Leeds has built an enviable reputation as a hotbed for leading tech companies. This includes Snowflake, the world-leading cloud data platform, who have made Leeds a key hub in the UK.



Tech start-ups and scale-ups are also thriving in Leeds. HyperFinity, a decision intelligence platform, powered by Snowflake, are a perfect example.



At this event we’ll hear from all four organisations in a panel discussion hosted by Justine Andrew, Associate Partner at KPMG. The event will cover:



• Leeds City Council – what makes Leeds such an attractive and vibrant city for tech companies?

• Snowflake – why we chose Leeds as a UK hub and how we collaborate with and benefit our tech partners

• HyperFinity – how Leeds city region and our Snowflake partnership have helped us succeed

• KPMG – how we bring together local ecosystems and help our clients thrive in Leeds



Anyone interested in Leeds’ tech ecosystem is welcome at this event. People in retail, financial services, healthcare, tech, education and beyond will find value in the talks and enjoy networking with other members of Leeds’ thriving community.
