Momentum - The Voice of the Digital Sector
Momentum is the trade association for the ICT industry in Northern Ireland and draws its membership from the majority of ICT businesses here. It was established to represent those with a common interest in promoting and developing the industry both locally and internationally.
Northern Ireland has the best record of any UK region in creating jobs and reducing unemployment. The majority of new jobs have been in knowledge industries particularly ICT including software development, software testing and funds administration.
- Momentum member companies generate an estimated £344 million for the Northern Ireland economy.
- Momentum NI represents more than 250 businesses employing 15,000 people. This is the Information Age and our members are leaders in the Information Communications and Technology Industry (ICT).
- The Northern Ireland Executive has indicated that growth of the ICT industry is a top priority. There is a clear potential for expansion within Northern Ireland and opportunities for international development.
- ICT will play an increasingly important role in education and learning, health, communities and business and Momentum will be there to support the interests of our members and the industry in general.
