About us

TechResort was founded in 2013 to make Eastbourne a great home for digital, tech and creative people

 

Our  board of directors come from different parts of creative and digital industries, but have the same vision. To support our local businesses to thrive and encourage as many people as possible to get involved in tech activities.

We’re a Community Interest Company which means our profits and assets are used solely for the public good. Most of the people who work for us volunteer, and everyone at TechResort is in it for the good of our town. You can look us up at Companies House.

How we help Eastbourne

  • contributing to local and regional discussions on the subject of digital skills shortages and how to address them
  • working with schools, colleges and employers to link tech education to local skills needs
  • running hands-on workshops for people of all ages to enthuse them about the possibilities that creative and digital skills have to offer
  • helping with skills development for teachers, community volunteers, public sector staff and businesses
  • lending our skills and equipment to develop the practice of local artists who want to use more digital assets in their work
  • helping local entrepreneurs realise their designs and inventions with specialist help
  • directly employing local young people, helping them develop both technical and soft skills for their future employment
  • offering adults flexible work to accommodate health and other needs, to help them build their work portfolio
