More About Ripon

Introduction

Ripon is a charming market town situated in North Yorkshire, England. Founded by the Romans in 71 AD, it is one of the oldest boroughs in the country and carries a rich legacy of history and culture. The town has undergone vast transformation in recent years and is today a vibrant and desirable location to visit and do business. Everyone can find something of interest here — with its unique blend of culture, nature, design, and commerce — and it's easy to see why the area has made such a name for itself as a hotbed for business, technology, design, commerce, and entrepreneurship.

The area boasts a vibrant and hardworking business community, drawing on the strengths of its bustling town centre and its thriving surrounding villages. Businesses of all shapes and sizes from start-ups employing three people up to well-established corporate entities face the opportunity of large-scale strategic partnerships or finding a bespoke way of doing things — no matter the industry sector.

Technology, design, commerce, and investment are also key to the Ripon economy. With the university in nearby Harrogate, and higher education colleges, business ideas and projects have an inspiring local launchpad. Hailed as a 'Teesside success story', an increasing number of tech-savvy entrepreneurs have chosen to call this area home injecting much-needed capital into the economy. With over 140,000 people living within a ten-mile radius, many of whom are still passionately connected to their home town, the area has seen significant growth since the turn of the twenty-first century.

Demographics

The population of Ripon stands at 16,700, with the overwhelming majority (96%) being of white ethnicity. Male to female ratio is split fairly fairly evenly at 49.8% to 50.2%. The average age of retirement here is higher than the national average, currently standing at 67.3. In 2019, the median household income in this area was £38,800.

Business

Ripon has a strong and vibrant business sector, which has been shaped in part by the work of the Ripon Business Partnership. Established in 1997, the Partnership has acted as a voice for many local employers, connecting them to the local community. Businesses in the area range across many sectors, from services, retail, and hospitality to technology, manufacturing, and food production. Notable employers in the area include the award-winning Taylors of Harrogate, the country-style tea and coffee producers, the First White Rose Shopping Centre, and local delicatessen Hodgson's.

For those wishing to start up their own business, the city is well placed to offer great opportunities for entrepreneurs. Several business parks in the area offer opportunities for start-ups, such as the new Ripley Business Park, and the well-established Business Park (Hamilton Court). There are also a number of local start-up awareness and networking events, such as the monthly Ripon Business Awards, and the Humber Innovation Forum helps more established businesses to grow, develop and move forward with their products and services.

Ripon also has an active start-up and tech scene. Initiatives such as TechJam Ripon and Cobalt attract a growing number of tech-savvy business owners and entrepreneurs, while coding workshops and digital marketing training events have proven popular among local students and established business leaders.

Technology

Ripon is firmly ensconced in the technological landscape of the twenty-first century. Education plays an important role in the rapid adoption of technology and digital practices and is encouraged in schools, colleges, and universities in the area. Businesses, too, are embracing the new opportunities afforded by tech. This can be seen in the number of start-ups that have set up shop in recent years, many of whom are developing technologies and solutions to meet everyday needs.

The University of Heriot-Watt, Harrogate is a leading research institution in the region, allowing businesses to collaborate and benefit from a range of insights and data. This type of collaboration accelerates the development of technology, with companies such as the award-winning Transparence Health leading the way in the adoption of AI and machine learning solutions.

The centrepiece of the technoloy scene is the Tech Jam Ripon event which brings together many of the region's leading tech experts and has become a major draw card for many businesses. The event has become so successful that in 2019 the weekend saw an estimated 3000 visitors pass through the doors. It's a great way to introduce technologies, learn best practices, and network with leading industry professionals.

Design

Ripon has long been known for its unique blend of artistic heritage and modern design. With a range of urban, rural, and commercial projects in the pipeline, the area is in the midst of a design revival. The annual Ripon Arts Council Awards has become a major draw for artists and designers to come together to create and celebrate the region's uncompromising creativity.

Local fashion designers are also thriving here, with student designers from the University of Heriot-Watt collaborating with established fashion brands to bring unique designs to the high street. From a distance, Ripon may appear to be a sleepy old town but those who live and visit here know that the area is a hub of creativity, and its traditional crafts are blended with modern design sensibilities.

Commerce

Ripon has a tradition of commerce stretching back centuries and this is still evident today. The bustling town centre is full of small independent businesses, catering to local needs. Many of the traditional trades continue to this day, with Ripon's many old pubs, cobblers, jewellers, and bakers becoming part of the town's rich fabric.

There are also larger businesses in the area, such as national chains and supermarkets, as well as a number of technology and manufacturing companies. The Enterprise Zone at Hamilton Court border offers further opportunities for growth for businesses of all sizes and types. This area is within the Yorkshire and Humber region, an area that generates £13.8 billion annually and is one of the UK's key economic areas.

In addition to traditional commerce, Ripon is well placed to take advantage of the emerging realms of e-commerce and digital finance. With access to a wide range of technology-driven tools, businesses of all sizes and specialisms can find success in a connected, global economy. Examples such as Poplamb — a small independent fashion brand that has found success through its online presence — demonstrate the effectiveness of online businesses in the Ripon region.

Entrepreneurship and Investment

Ripon and its surrounding villages have shown considerable entrepreneurial spirit in recent years and have become destinations for aspirational start-ups and those seeking investment.

Ripon has developed a thriving network of entrepreneurs, with events such as TechJam, Digital Dragons, and the Ripon Business Awards encouraging collaboration and expertise sharing. These networks provide vital links to the world of venture funding and angel investors, and numerous success stories of local companies securing investment are a testament to this.

The University of Heriot-Watt, Harrogate offers vital networks and connections to investors, with start-ups such as MyPollen and Glider Health successfully sourcing early-stage funding. Local 'angel investment' networks are also common, such as with the North Yorkshire Angel Investment Network, which provides support to entrepreneurs during the funding process.

Ripon Business Park also acts as a hub for start-ups, providing a range of workshops, courses, and incubation programmes — such as the three month 'Start-up Accelerator' run by the University of Heriot-Watt Harrogate. Other initiatives such as the recently launched Harrogate Tech Reach, which offers an opportunity for tech start-ups to get investment, are becoming increasingly popular in the area.

Conclusion

Ripon is an attractive option for people and businesses from numerous industries, both traditional and new technology focused, thanks to its thriving local culture, vibrant business scene, pioneering technology, and inspiring design. The town has shown great resilience over the centuries and continues to thrive today, benefiting from its unique blend of industry sectors and unlocking new opportunities for entrepreneurs and investors alike. Its location between Leeds and York also offers many advantages, as Ripon is able to access the expertise and investment available in both cities while maintaining a strong local identity and culture. With a steady population growth, diverse demographics and an ever-increasing number of business start-ups, Ripon looks set to continue growing as a desirable Location for business, technology, design, commerce, entrepreneurship and investment.
