Sunderland Software Centre
Sunderland Software Centre has a prime city centre location, and reflects the city’s ambition to support the software, game development, digital, tech and creative sectors.
With bespoke space for more than 60 businesses, the centre has the connectivity and infrastructure to help them prosper and grow. Cutting-edge offices are designed to offer flexible staged office moves with a high-specification finish, supporting companies as they expand and grow. With a range of variying sized offices spread across three floors prices start from £52per month for vitual tenancy, and as little as £2,124 per year for a 20 metre square office and up to £21,123 for 196 metre square office space*.
Tenants can book conference rooms, break-out and innovation areas and meeting pods. There are social events including Friday get-togethers, a tenants forum and Facebook page, business breakfasts and information sessions. The centre also hosts Sunderland Digital, a monthly meet up of the digital community, as well as international conferences, IBM Developer and Drupal Hub.
With regional support hub Sunderland Software City and the Digital Catapult North East and Tess Valley on hand to help and encourage the sector, businesses here are part of a community, sharing ideas, best practice and the ambition to create the technology of tomorrow, today.
