Derby Waves Hi-Tech Flag in FT

Derby should be considered right at the heart of a UK map listing cities likely to help the UK create employment in hi-tech clusters. The case was made in the Financial Times this week by John Forkin, MD of Marketing Derby, following a report on entrepreneurial hotspots produced by HSBC. “The fact is that 12% of Derby’s employment is in hi-tech functions, which is four times the national average and twice that of Cambridge. Derby was the only city in the midlands to create a net gain in private sector jobs during the boom and the UK needs more cities like Derby if there is any hope of rebalancing the economy” says Forkin.
