Increase business opportunities through collaboration
Many small businesses in Cornwall encounter difficulties in winning more valuable contracts and tenders because of their size, and as a result many contracts are awarded out of county. The DPN ICT/Digital business network helps to encourage small businesses to work together and combine strengths in order to access larger and more diverse contracts.
