The Northern Nanny takes Boston  

The Northern Nanny released its mobile app for families to book nanny services in May 2019.  

Recently Sarah Heward, chief operating officer and co-founder at The Northern Nanny visited Boston, USA for an exciting week of learning and networking at the Babson Conference Centre. 

The Northern Nanny currently has a team of 14 nannies and does 525 hours of childcare monthly. The company has recently developed their app through help from DigitalCity 

Sarah said: “We aspire to take The Northern Nanny worldwide, there’s a massive market for British nannies to be working globally so getting the opportunity to go to Boston and learn business development on a global scale was so exciting.” 

It’s great to see brand new and emerging digital companies in Teesside travelling far and their companies going well. Such a great idea Sarah, we can’t wait to see how it goes. 


DigitalCity’s Scale up programme launches 

Last week saw DigitalCity launch its next SCALE programme with a new cohort of businesses. 

The first programme gave businesses the chance to network with SCALE alumni and the companies enrolling on the current course. 

Lorna Dunning, personal development leader, mindset and success coach offered tips on the relationship between our thinking and behaviour and results 

The fully funded programme aims to equip businesses that are capable of scaling with all the tools necessary to grow their business. 

After each session a dedicated business mentor helps the companies to formulate a bespoke action plan to help the growth of the business become a reality.  


More Collaboration for Cocoon & Bauer 

Last month saw Double Eleven announce the opening of their studio in Malaysia and their plans for expansion aren’t just going global but are continuing in Teesside too. 

This can’t all be done without the help of a little bit of collaboration of course! 

Albert North residents Cocoon & Bauer have recently announced their proposal for a new breakout meeting facility in Boho One.  

Cocoon & Bauer hinted at some further upcoming projects with the company too. 

Ooooh, we’re looking forward to more collaboration.
