CONNECTING THE TECH ECOSYSTEM ACROSS SOUTH YORKSHIRE
Technology Ecosystem Acceleration and Market-Making South Yorkshire (TEAM SY)
TEAM SY is here to help you navigate the complicated and often confusing web that is the startup ecosystem. If you’re an entrepreneur at any stage and you’re wondering what’s available in the region to support the launch or growth of your business, we can help.
If you’ve already done research and found yourself confused by the vast number of programmes and business support offers available to you, we can be your tour guides on this journey.
If you’re a business advisor or programme leader and wondering how the entrepreneurs you support can access follow on support or funding, let’s chat.
Since January 2020, we’ve been building connections with entrepreneurs, funders, universities, business support programmes and policy makers. We’re helping existing players to be more connected. And soon, we’ll be announcing the new programmes we’re funding to fill the gaps in South Yorkshire’s ecosystem.
To become part of our community, or get updates on new programmes and opportunities, fill in your details in the chat and we’ll get back to you soon!
