Retail Tech

Jan 10 - Mar 31 | Barnsley, UK

Accelerating the global growth and adoption of disruptive technologies

About this Program

The retail sector has suffered greatly during the COVID-19 pandemic and its recovery will have a huge impact on local communities up and down the country.

This is why we are working in partnership with Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council to support their recovery plans and revitalise the local retail economy.
This project is one of seven Prioritised Recovery Projects, part of a £2 million economic investment, funded by Barnsley Council and Sheffield City Region. As part of Barnsley’s Economic Recovery Action Plan, these projects will help the local economy bounce back from Covid. The programme aims to support people, businesses, traders, charities or community organisations to safeguard existing jobs as well as creating new jobs and businesses.

The programme is fee and equity-free for founders with cutting edge retail technologies to help revitalise the commerce economy in Barnsley.

This will be a hybrid programme with a combination of virtual support and opportunities to work in person with the team in Barnsley to deploy a pilot project for your technology.
Why apply?:
o Access a carefully curated programme to help you scale
o Opportunities to deploy a pilot in Barnsley's Glassworks centre
o Access to IoT Tribe’s global network of investors, corporates and, of course, our outstanding alumni.

We are looking for a diverse cohort of ambitious and passionate founders that believe in the power of communities. You will already have proof of product-market fit, have a team, and be able to demonstrate some market traction.
