As part of our Mission ’21 vision we’re doing all we can to help the Digital, Creative and Tech sector stay strong and thrive through uncertain times. Since April 2020 this is just some of what we’ve done to help that goal:

  • Secured £450k of European funding to dedicate to business support
  • Awarded development grants (from £1000 to £5000) to individual companies
  • Helped small groups of business leaders navigate their way through Covid via dozens of facilitated, discussion sessions
  • Provided free, in-depth, one-to-one advice with business experts
  • Shared a stream of ideas about how to adapt to challenging times with a Webinar series
  • Launched a new accelerator program to help those looking to set up a new business venture
  • Opened up the regional Cluster map and database for the world to see who we are

Whatever the rest of the year throws our way, we’ll continue to deliver more of this. But we can’t do it alone. We need you to be part of the Network, to sign up your support and put yourself on the map too. In return, you have access to all of this support as well as enjoy lots of great benefits for your business.

To help make it easier to sign up, we’ve switched the annual fee to a monthly fee, so you can test things out easily and cheaply – and can cancel your subscription at any time.

Great news!
Signing up to the Network gives you a month’s free trial, so you can see if membership of Silicon South is right for you.*
