Startupscale, a two-year project providing training and mentoring to startups throughout the region, has launched in Sheffield.
In addition to training, networking and networking opportunities, the progress of startups involved in the project will be documented through an online TV and podcast series.
Based in Barclays-powered incubator Kollider in the centre of the city, Startupscale was created by Roaring Mouse Public Relations founder James Taylor to offer support to local tech ventures.
James explained: “While it is easy to start a tech company, turning one into a sustainable, growth-based businesses is far harder.
“Startupscale is a long-term commitment to supporting startups, accelerating their development, and improving the odds that participants will build strong, successful companies.”

“In line with our values, the programme supports startups from Sheffield and across the North of England and complements the existing activities our team and partners are delivering around mentorship, skills workshops and access to funding in a vibrant ecosystem.”
