Mission

Tech Welcome was announced at the South Yorkshire Tech Summit in November 2022 as a trial project to deliver more tech businesses investing into the South Yorkshire region.  
The aim of the project is to combine with the tech start-up support offer through TEAM SY, to bring the brightest tech and digital businesses to South Yorkshire. 

With amazing spaces in the region, such as Sheffield Tech Parks, Kollider, RIDO Business Hub, and the DMC, we want to make sure they're filled with the country's best businesses to create a cluster of creativity and like-minded entrepreneurs to boost the region's economic impact.

Why South Yorkshire?

We asked some of the many tech businesses, already at home here, why South Yorkshire is so great, what support they have, and why it's important to bring more of that in. Listen to what they had to say.
