Startup Meetup Barnsley – powered by DMC Barnsley and Transform SY

6:00pm on 24/03/2022

Entrepreneurs in Barnsley – let’s build a community together!

Startup Meetup is one of our attempts at getting entrepreneurs and startup enthusiasts together in Barnsley in order to build a connected and collaborative community.

Meetups are an established way of forging strong networks (there is a direct correlation between higher number of meetups and higher number of startups created) and they usually serve well as a tool to bring people who share a similar area of work or interest.

Startup Meetup Barnsley is for:

  • Entrepreneurs (whether you’ve founded a business that now employs 500 people or just started your startup in your room, you are welcome)
  • Startup employees
  • Investors
  • Employees of startup-supporting organisations
  • Students looking to get into startups or build a business eventually
  • Startup enthusiasts (you like reading about Silicon Valley and London? It’s time to learn what’s happening in your own town!)

We had a very successful first edition of Startup Meetup Barnsley, and thus are hosting it again! If you came to the first one, spread the word and get new people to join us, too!
