We know that some of the UK’s most talented digital & creative businesses call Derby and Derbyshire home. Mainframe is a community of those people, sharing their talent, knowledge and inspiration.

Based at QUAD and funded via the European Regional Development Fund and Art’s Council England; we host free monthly events covering topics from the inspirational, to business growth to the downright futuristic and forward thinking.

Mainframe is part of the Big House, a collaboration providing sector specific support; making it easier for digital & creative businesses to understand and access the free help available in our region.

We also have our own curated Mainframe Jobs board, to help employers in our region to find the great talent we know exists locally.
