Growing the local business economy is good for everyone. So the Council is working closely with University of Bedfordshire to bring together like-minded businesses in the Creative and ICT sector to encourage greater communication, cross-working and success.
A recent Creative Luton event at the University urged freelancers, agencies and businesses to come along and find out what support, resources and facilities are available. Attendees also discovered how Luton is developing as a hub for creative businesses and how they can help identify priorities for the sector.
Cllr Roy Davis, portfolio holder for Regeneration, said: "We have a new and shiny vision: we want to help businesses create a strong partnership with the University to take on skilled graduates, work on research projects, and help businesses access the University’s facilities."
Les Ebdon, Vice Chancellor for The University, said: "We are working on developing a virtual platform called the Creative Quarter, a business-led website to promote Luton’s creative industries, allowing them to write fresh blogs and advertise jobs, contracts and freelancing opportunities."
