We were delighted to welcome Danny Alexander, Chief Secretary to the Treasury to the C4DI yesterday. Many thanks to Claire Thomas, Candidate for Hull West & Hessle who organised the visit. Danny was a pleasure to speak with and we spoke at length about the digital sector in the city and the "perfect storm" of conditions we have for startups: the environment of the C4DI Beta, incredible connectivity with KC Lightstream, a world class tourism event on the horizon (City of Culture), the upcoming main C4DI project, the City Engine and the incredible community.
We also thanked him for the Coastal Community funding, announced today, provided to support the Dry Dock Development, an instrumental part of the main C4DI project.
As you can see below, we had a huge amount of media there for the afternoon! Click and scroll around the C4DI!
