Bristol appears on this innovation map complied by McKinsey and the World Economic Forum. This is fantastic recognition for Bristol. However, as Andy Parkhouse of Team Rubber points out, local government support is extremely patchy when it comes to the digital media industry that helped put us on the map. Bristol seems to be suceeding, despite the lack of funding, but there are numerous successful projects in the city, such as Bristol Media and BMEX, that are being virtually ignored when it comes to funding. As pointed out in one of the comments, it seems that as far as SWRDA are concerned, if it isn’t an old building, or doesn’t appear on TV, they just don’t understand it.
