Digital City Fellowship 2018 – 2023

Digital City Fellowship 2018 – 2023

We were asked to deliver a series of workshops for the Digital City Accelerator in collaboration with the SME Centre of Excellence. The programme was created to support Tees Valley-based digital and tech companies in the early stages of their development and comprises a ten week workshop programme, bespoke mentoring from expert business coaches and a start-up grant of £5,000.


“The workshops are brilliantly and enthusiastically delivered by The SME Centre of Excellence and Silbo who have designed a programme that is perfectly pitched for early stage companies. The Fellows also receive one-to-one support from Silbo through the duration of the Accelerator Programme. Phil and Justin are very valued partners of ours in that they share our passion and values for supporting start-up companies. They are always willing to (and often do) go the extra mile to ensure that each company receives a high level of support that is bespoke to their individual needs. The feedback from the participants is always very good or excellent. Nine out of ten participants would either definitely or be very likely to attend the Programme again. 99% would recommend it to others.”

Brief: In collaboration with the SME Centre of Excellence combine create the best early stage accelerator possible using the best range of methods and tools.
