Growing the Digital Economy - Twitter Discussion
Derry / Strabane Businesses we need you!
Over the course of the past few months Startacus has been helping to spread the news of Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Growing the Digital Economy Programme. The programme has now come to a close with the final 2 day Digital Derry Conference being a great success.
The programme offered specialist support tailored for digital businesses, and also helped traditional companies in need of guidance when it comes to ‘going digital’. The project was part funded by Invest Northern Ireland and the European Regional Development Fund under the Sustainable Competitiveness Programme for N. Ireland.
On Tuesday 30th June between 10am and 2pm we will be hosting a twitter discussion via @iamstartacus on the Growing the Digital Economy Programme under the hashtag #DigitalDerry; it’s your chance to share your experiences of the programme. We want to hear from as many people as possible about what you liked, what you didn’t like, what you found useful, what you didn’t, what excited you and what made your eyes droop!
It is vitally important that as many people as possible get involved in this discussion, as the council is very keen that the digital community have the chance to shape future programming aimed at growing the digital economy.
Date: Tuesday 30th June
Time: 10am to 2pm
Between now and then, it would be lovely if you would consider your opinion of some of the main questions and issues we will be discussing during the Twitter chat.
