Technology in Cornwall

Technology in Cornwall

Rapid tech growth

We are a founding member of key development communities like Software Cornwall and Agile on the Beach, and we are the largest tech employer in the county. We are very proud that Headforwards plays a central role in Cornwall’s technological landscape.

And with a growing ecosystem of technology businesses, impressive connectivity and unique surroundings, Cornwall has been critical to our growth.

Too often, Cornwall is seen as a place to slow down your career. In reality, the developers here are at the top of their career, without the added stresses of living in a city – and it really shows in work we do.

Connected Cornwall

Geographically, Headforwards may sit at the tip of the UK, but Cornwall’s advanced infrastructure means we enjoy all the advantages of an enviable location with none of the traditional downsides.

With fibre broadband reaching 95% of the county thanks to the Superfast Cornwall scheme, easy travel links to the UK’s biggest cities, and major EU investment in the county’s roads, rail network and airport, Cornwall is truly connected.

There’s a misconception that Cornwall is outside of the UK’s tech sector – but it couldn’t be more different. With the rapidly growing infrastructure we have here, we have all the benefits of a city and more.

It’s not just the thriving tech sector that makes Cornwall an ideal location for us – it’s also the unique landscape that surrounds it.

More and more skilled developers are seeing Cornwall as an alternative to the stressful city life, and it’s creating huge benefits. With a growing pool of highly experienced talent in the area, clients get to work with developers at the top of their game – without paying the price of city-based development teams. And, crucially, our developers get to do what they love in a relaxed and truly unique location.
