Transform SY

Transform SY (powered by Entrepreneurial Spark)

Transform SY (powered by Entrepreneurial Spark) – the virtual accelerator designed to transform
the entrepreneurial landscape in South Yorkshire – is starting this week.

After 6 weeks of interviewing tech businesses from Sheffield, Doncaster, Rotherham, and Barnsley
and taking them through a rigorous selection process, the team behind Transform selected 18
entrepreneurs to join the first cohort of the programme that will run from January 10th to the
middle of June 2022. The businesses range in terms of industry and size and therefore will be split
into 5 ‘sprint’ groups based on their size so they can navigate the next 6 months together.
‘This is a very important week because we are starting a journey that can be transformational for
our region. We recognized the immense potential that South Yorkshire carries as a tech and
entrepreneurial hub and believe that by bringing the experience and expertise of the Entrepreneurial
Spark team, we can have a real impact on the business ecosystem in the region. Our goal is to create
the next entrepreneurial leaders in South Yorkshire, and I am confident that any of the 18 founders
that is joining us on the first cohort can and will become one’, said Denislav Ivanov, Marketing &
Community Manager for Transform SY.
The programme is a six-month bespoke, one-to-one accelerator, and offers:

  • Fully funded growth support for anyone looking to transform their business. They will support any growth goals, whether fundraising, revenue growth or building a team.
  • Intensive entrepreneurial mindset development, to create the region’s entrepreneurial
    leaders of the future.
  • A supportive community, cross-pollinated with opportunities from their other accelerators.
