Hyve News is a news site focusing on Digital and Creative news in Leeds – covering startups, scaleups and growth businesses.
Hyve News was born out of a very simple observation – we do amazing things in Tech in Leeds but, in true Yorkshire style, we just get on with it and don’t bother telling anyone about them!
The final straw was when a leading tech commentator said that “There’s no tech in Leeds!”
So we’ve set about changing that perception…
Our mission on this site is to showcase (still in a very modest Yorkshire way) some of the downright incredible things we’re doing in Leeds and to provide a pathway for people to connect and find out about who’s doing what. To show the amazing achievements that some incredible companies have made and to celebrate the successes we have though bringing together news and views from Leeds and its surrounding areas.
At our heart we’re a community initiative which hopes to elevate the perception of the Leeds tech community and give it the credibility it deserves.
We’ll only be writing about Creative and Digital and the ecosystem that surrounds it – so we’re really sorry but unless your latest story has a tech angle – we won’t be writing about it.
Leeds City Council provided the seed funding to set up this site – and our running costs are paid for by sponsors without whom we would not be able to serve the community. So a big thank you to them all!
We’re sure you’ll tell us if we’re getting it wrong – we hope you’ll tell us when we get it right…
Please get involved and watch this space!
