Software Cornwall Vision

About Software Cornwall – May 15

Software Cornwall was formed informally in 2012 by a group from the software sector in Cornwall collaborating to support the growth of the software industry in the County.  Since then it has become a collaborative group of software development enterprises, education providers and business support organisations based in Cornwall, UK working together to grow the software engineering sector in Cornwall.

This has led to the formation of a Not-For-Profit organisation in April 2015 which it is hoped will be funded through membership and sponsorship.  We hope to access funding streams in the future.  The business supports agile values and approaches in its creation, growth and development.
