Yesterday was a significant milestone in the history of the C4DI and the tech sector in Hull. We launched the C4DI Accelerator with a packed venue of members, guests and interested people.

We will be running the accelerator programme in March 2015 with applications being invited later this year. Successful accelerators have valued companies supporting them and we are delighted that PwC are our lead supporter.

PwC provide industry-focused assurance, tax and advisory services to enhance value for their clients. More than 163,000 people in 151 countries in firms across the PwC network share their thinking, experience and solutions to develop fresh perspectives and practical advice.

Andrew Fitton, tax director at PwC in Hull, said:

“Hull has never been short on entrepreneurial spirit and this is another fantastic example of how local people are seizing the opportunities that come their way.

We understand the ups and downs of starting a business and look forward to sharing what we know to help these businesses succeed. These entrepreneurs are part of an exciting, idea-fuelled digital sector and their ambition will go a long way in helping build Hull’s reputation as an innovative and forward-thinking city.”
