Silicon South’s 10th Degree Returns

The 10th Degree is a mentoring lab – for up to 20 companies with high-growth aspirations and/or looking to develop a new product or service, all in the digital, tech and creative sectors: Digital, Games, MedTech, EdTech, FinTech, TV, Film, Design, Marketing etc.

We offer Managing Directors of these SMEs the chance to sit down and discuss their plans, across the broad spectrum of business challenges they face, in the company of 10 experts with skills in a variety of disciplines such as Tech, HR, PR, Marketing, Finance, Operations.

The day is focused on supporting innovation. We want to invite people running companies that are keen to grow, especially through the creation of new products and services, but are facing difficulties in making it happen. You should have a good idea of what’s hindering your progress and have a strong desire to speak to experts who can help you gain the clarity needed to drive your business to the next stage.

Spaces are limited with only 20 companies to allowed participate (two people per company may attend) and the event which is fully funded by the European Regional Development Fund, would usually cost £500 per company. We therefore ask that you bear this in mind and make sure you commit to the date fully.
