Digital Peninsula Network (DPN) is devoted to helping the ICT and digital media industry to become more profitable.
We provide a framework of support for our membership and promote Cornwall as the UK's digital peninsula – a leading region in the development and use of digital technology.
At DPN, we believe that businesses are becoming more and more reliant on the Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs). In addition to supporting businesses working in the ICT / Digital sector DPN supports businesses to make the best use of ICT as a catalyst for business productivity and growth.
Our work is targeted at Small and Medium Businesses (SMEs) in Cornwall and focusses on the following key areas: Skills and knowledge: DPN primarily helps IT and digital businesses keep abreast of the rapidly evolving digital media technologies, through skills training and up-to-date information. We also provide a wide range of relevant and flexible courses to cater for the needs of every SME wanting to explore digital technologies as a way to increase their profit.
