Northern Powerhouse Means Big Business

‘Northern powerhouse’ will mean big business for the North

Investing in a research and innovation centre will provide greater opportunity for future economic growth in the North

Following the recent announcement that the government will be investing £200 million to create a 'northern powerhouse', a research and innovation centre for world-class scientists and technicians in Manchester, Piers Linney, Co-CEO of Manchester-based Cloud Services Provider Outsourcery, welcomes the government's decision, stating that it will be key in contributing to business growth in the North.
Developments like these will make Manchester and the surrounding area much more attractive places to live and work and strengthen the economy of the whole of the UK. Piers Linney, Co-CEO of Outsourcery

Linney commented: "The government's investment in the development of a research and innovation centre in Manchester is a great move for the business environment in the North of England. With a vast range of highly skilled people in Manchester, it will be a fantastic opportunity for scientists and technicians to develop their research and contribute to the city's business infrastructure. This, combined with the government's recent announcement of the launch of TechNorth to rival Silicon Roundabout in London, is all good news for the economic development of the region.”
