Tees Valley startups encouraged to take part in DigitalCity's latest tech programme
DigitalCity is recruiting Tees Valley-based digital and technology professionals to its first Fellowship Accelerator Programme of 2019.
The programme is designed for early-stage businesses who have been trading for less than 12 months.
DigitalCity Fellows are said to benefit from a programme of workshops and mentoring, as well as a grant of up to £5,000.
Scott Watson, DigitalCity’s cluster innovation manager, said: “Through the Fellowship Accelerator, we support the exciting digital startups coming out of the Tees Valley.
“We’re particularly interested in working with businesses that are involved in transforming traditional sectors with their digital and tech skills
“We’re also keen to work with innovators who are commercialising an idea, product or service that they want to develop to seek further investment.”
Led by Teesside University in partnership with the Tees Valley Combined Authority and part-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), DigitalCity has helped to create some of the region’s biggest companies.
The last programme included companies providing digital solutions to problems in the areas of health and end of life care, live music and space technology.
