February update for TEAM SY

In January, Unrest held a very well attended demo day for their first South Yorkshire cohort at the Barbican in London. Applications are currently open for mission-driven ambitious startups to take part in their second cohort. January also saw JUMP accelerator open applications for their Sports Tech programme which will run from April to June. It will be hosted at Landing Pad, a new coworking facility based at the Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park.

We at TEAM SY are very sad to be saying a fond farewell to John Spindler, the CEO of Capital Enterprise (our host organisation). Thankfully he is committed to the longterm success of CE and TEAM SY, and will be lending us his considerable experience and expertise even once he leaves CE employment.

Activity coming up: we are looking forward to the second GovTech Academy cohort which starts in March, and we’re excited to be running another Get Funding Fit bootcamp in the Spring, aimed at entrepreneurs who want to raise equity investment.
