The recent Masters of the Revolution report sets out recommendations to create a pro-enterprise environment which plays to the strengths of Yorkshire's creative entrepreneurs. 

In what is dubbed as the  Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), the report urges the Government to look to the regions to help drive a turbo-charged science based economy.

There are pockets of world-leading technology being created in the region which are supporting global businesses such as Nissan. 

Alan Mak, chairman of the APPG for Entrepreneurship and the 4IR believes that Yorkshire can lead a industrial renaissance that will see an explosion of tech based growth. 

Improved transport investment together with enhanced digital infrastructure can only help to support this.
