DigitalCity offer free expert-led series of workshops to Tees Valley SMEs

10 September 2020 @TeessideUni

 

The Teesside University-led initiative, DigitalCity, is holding a series of free online workshops and bespoke mentoring opportunities this autumn for SMEs based in the Tees Valley.

Led by industry experts, the workshops will cover key themes that are paramount to businesses during this challenging time. Cyber security, e-commerce and digital tools for remote working are taking place over the upcoming weeks in September, with more topics to be announced in the coming months.

The region’s business leaders and managers are invited to attend and learn alongside like-minded peers during the fully-funded afternoon sessions. Following this they will be given the opportunity to receive one-to-one mentoring and consultancy from the delivery team to support current projects, opportunities or challenges in more detail.

DigitalCity will be joined by security guru, Ben Kenyon, Director of North CS to deliver the Cyber Security workshop. While co-founders of the award-winning digital consultancy firm, Braid Consulting, will deliver the e-commerce and digital tools sessions.

The online workshops are part of a suite of new digital offerings from DigitalCity which has put considerable effort into enhancing its online offer in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

This has included a revamp of its website to provide a more user-oriented experience and an intuitive design to provide easy access to information about DigitalCity’s services to business.

The initiative has also shifted its Accelerator Programme online to continue the support of early-stage tech companies in the Tees Valley. Applications for the October programme close at noon on Monday 14th September.

With a track record of supporting SMEs from both the tech and wider sectors, DigitalCity is determined to continue to utilise its extensive network of digital expertise to provide businesses with the best chance of achieving success in the inevitable online future.
