A Portstewart based digital media company flew out to California’s Silicon Valley on Sunday as part of a Tech Mission led by the Lord Mayor and funded by Belfast City Council, in partnership with Invest Northern Ireland.

The five-day trip is providing an opportunity for 20 local companies to showcase some of the new technologies and products being developed to leading companies, investors and venture capitalists from the west coast of the United States.

Locally-based digiShare360’s Head of Business Development, Mark Caldwell, is among the travelling party who will network with other businesses in Silicon Valley and San Francisco, showcase products and services, meet potential clients, develop partnerships and raise the economic profile of Northern Ireland to the global marketplace.

digiShare360 specialises in digital marketing and communications.

The company says: “We have developed partners in the UK, Ireland, Poland and are in talks with prospective distribution partners in India, US, Australia and South Africa. Exports account for 18% of our current business.”
