Cornwall is well known as a holiday destination, complete with buckets, spades and scones. But beyond its beachy exterior – and associated seasonal economy, low-paid jobs and tourist traffic jams – is a region harbouring a tech revolution. It’s a home for innovation and progressive ideas – from Goonhilly, the world’s most advanced satellite Earth station, to Wave Hub, the world’s most advanced marine renewables testing site. We needed to transform Cornwall’s image, so it could be known for its thriving tech scene and attract business to the area.
We looked at Cornwall through an economic lens and from a global perspective – and saw a region defined by innovation and forward-thinking, and powered by huge European investment in the Space and Marine Renewables sectors.
Working in collaboration with Invest in Cornwall, we repositioned the region as a global centre for modern business.
“Earth has become an extension to my team, integrated and accommodating in every way. The work has been so successful that Earth has been appointed by other organisations in Cornwall to commission work. Earth does not hesitate to be ‘in the room’. This has really demonstrated to me how much Earth pride themselves on client relationships and communication.”Nicola Lloyd, Head of Inward Investment, Invest in Cornwall
