Tramshed Tech’s award winning Startup Academy supported by Google for Startups runs three times a year – the next kick-starting 5th May 2022 with registration closing 25th April.

The free twelve-week programme starting Thursday 5th May is designed to support early-stage tech startups and entrepreneurs when it comes to starting and growing their business. The programme consists of sequential learning designed to accelerate growth over a 12-week period. Throughout the programme, the cohort gain an opportunity to tap into Tramshed Tech’s network of entrepreneurs, scaling businesses, strategic partners, mentors and investors.
