We are excited about the digital, data and creative strengths of the city region and are also attracted to the Tech Hub that is now up and running at Platform.'' He also added, ''Together with the great national and international connectivity, it’s a compelling package as Hudl continues to grow around the world.”

Roger Marsh OBE, chair of Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) stated, “It’s great to welcome global tech brand Hudl to Leeds City Region. Our investment in creating spaces where digital and creative companies can thrive is paying off, and the scene is growing. The LEP Inward Investment teams have supported Hudl to move here, and we’re looking forward to launching a new product in April to incentivize more digital companies to locate in the region.”
