£1.6m digital incubator launches at University of Sunderland
The University of Sunderland has launched a new scheme in a bid to support the next generation of digital entrepreneurs.
The Digital Incubator has officially launched in the University’s David Goldman building at St Peter’s campus.
The project – funded jointly by UKRI Research England, the North East LEP, and the University – will provide members with a physical space within the University to work from, access to academics for mentoring purposes, business workshops, one-to-one advice, and access to kit including laptops and commercial software licenses.
Those who want to join the project are invited in for an initial chat, before being asked to pitch for membership through a presentation.
Louise Dixon, University of Sunderland Digital Incubator’s project manager, commented: “This isn’t just about facilities, it’s about creating a community among our members.
“We aim to support those looking to go down the freelance, digital career-route. We want to get them thinking about a tech career at as early a stage as possible.”
