Why I joined Tech North as community engagement manager

Community management is a fascinating and multifaceted role. On the one hand it’s a listening exercise: what challenges are tech startup founders in the region facing, and how can I help? The latter could involve anything from pointing them in the direction of a Tech North programme – such as Northern Stars or Founders’ Network – to writing an article about their startup or connecting them with somebody in the sector. I often have to explain to people what my role entails, so it made sense to publish an article on the Tech North website explaining just that. You can read it here.
