Wandsworth Council has set up a new business support programme to help the borough’s digital and technology sector.
The Wandsworth Digitech booster programme will be offering free advice sessions, training, networking and support and is aimed at any business either in the sector, or that sells to it.
Businesses will be able to join an informal network which will meet monthly across the borough, with the chance to get advice from experts in their field. Monthly masterclasses will include tips on marketing, funding, management, training and recruitment.
Wandsworth Council says it has a burgeoning tech sector, boosted by the news that Apple will be employing up to 3,000 people when it moves its UK headquarters to Battersea Power Station.
The council’s business spokesman Cllr Kim Caddy said: “Wandsworth has more than 3,000 registered technology businesses and excellent growth prospects. This sector is key to our local economy and helps drive regeneration and job creation. We are determined to support these businesses and help them thrive.”
