Smart cities technology firm Connexin has become an official partner of Britain’s Northern Powerhouse Partnership Programme.

Connexin joins a high-profile network of businesses that are aiming to shape the direction of the UK government’s combined Northern Powerhouse campaign.

Founded and based in Hull, Connexin is at the forefront of the city’s burgeoning tech sector, which employs more than 4,000 people and turned over £568 million (€650 million) in 2017.

On 4th October, Connexin staged a Building Smarter Cities event at the Hull Bonus Arena, which it intends will become the premier smart technology event in the North of England.

Furqan Alamgir, CEO & founder of Connexin says: “Connexin is made in Hull. The North is in our DNA. It feels like a natural fit for us to formally join the Northern Powerhouse through its partnership programme.

“We want to throw our weight behind what we see as a team effort by government, the education sector, citizens and business to realise the potential of the North. The North of England is advancing technologically at pace and it’s a privilege to be part of it,” adds Alamgir.
