Endorsed by the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and Southend Borough Council, our TechCityOnSea initiative is a privately sponsored community engagement programme designed to bring together public, private and voluntary sector organisations and individual residents and others interested in local digital transformation. In line with their pan-Essex “Green” Business programme, LoCase, a publicly funded grants and SME support programme invited us to replicate this outside of Southend and market their across the business communities of South Essex. We attracted 200+ attendees,22 local micro and small SME exhibitors and ran a series of workshops focussing on digital skills, access to finance, agile working and digital transformation.
“The TechCityOnSea events and now the TechCityOnThames event highlight the innovation, collaboration and creativity that Essex really has and tells the world that we’re not far behind Shoreditch and Cambridge for a passion to showcase and develop exciting and valuable 21st and even 22nd Century technology."
