Unlocking digital innovation in Northampton and beyond

As the UK’s leading AR agency, we are proud to be one of the founding partners behind the Digital Northampton initiative that is working to support digital innovation and growth of the digital economy in Northampton.


Digital Northampton has already made an impressive start by building connections between business, educators, the public sector, and entrepreneurs to create a network of talented individuals who are actively working on innovative digital projects. These projects span a wide range of technologies, including AR (Augmented Reality), VR (Virtual Reality), IoT (Internet of Things) and AI (Artificial Intelligence).

As well as connecting like-minded individuals and organisations to unlock new digital opportunities, Digital Northampton has organised a series of Early Bird events including our very own on the subject of Augmented Reality (AR) and the Future of Retail.
