Based in London's Tech city

Article comments

O2 says it's investing £500,000 in digital skills for young people.

O2 has invested in a young people's digital skills and support hub in central London.

The hub will welcome 3,000 young people in its first year, aimed at helping them develop their digital, entrepreneurial and work skills.

Ronan Dunne, O2 CEO, said: "With the economy showing welcome signs of recovery and the digital opportunity now recognised as key to guaranteeing future economic growth, it is vital that businesses look to employ the right people with the right skills.

"Giving opportunities to those who have these digital skills in abundance - young people - is therefore of paramount importance."

The Think Big Hub is located in the Silicon Roundabout or "Tech City" area of east London, where a number of tech start-ups are located.

The O2 cash is being invested over a five-year period.
