December update from Team SY

Image: South Yorkshire Tech Summit

We had some fantastic events in the last two weeks of November: the P4SY Showcase & MedTech conference on Weds 23rd; the South Yorkshire Tech Summit on Thurs 24th; and the South Yorkshire Investment Lounge on Weds 30th. Look out for write-ups about these events soon. At the Tech Summit, the SYMCA Tech Welcome grants were officially launched: these will provide funding for tech companies looking to relocate from South Yorkshire.

IoT Tribe have kicked off their 5th accelerator programme, DECARBONISE, in Barnsley, this time focussing on net zero. IndieLab are half way through their Gaming Accelerator, and have filled all places for the second phase which is focussed on investment readiness. Unrest are opening applications for their second cohort of mission-driven tech for good companies in January – watch this space. Transform SY held a 2-day BizJam in late November for SMEs. And finally, Blue Lake Accelerator had a pitch event for their first cohort. 

Don’t forget to register for our TEAM SY Christmas Showcase, taking place on Thursday 8th December at Barnsley DMC. Register here and come celebrate our region’s tech talent with some festive food and drinks.
