Digital Leaders SME Conference 2019
February 12 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm Free
Industry support for SME Transformation is being led by large corporates from the tech and banking sectors who provide support both in large national programmes like training platforms and at their points of contact with SMEs, but are all business organisations fully aligned in this journey?
Government support programmes are rolling out across the UK with business support and skills programmes delivered by a wide range of agencies and arms length organisations including the charity sector, but is this the right support and sustainable?
Start-up and innovation programmes are giving the push and acceleration that digital start-ups need. We will meet some of the very best.
