Business Support

Free support to help businesses grow at the Digital Media Centre.

The DMC is more than just a building, it is part of Enterprising Barnsley’s suite of business support meaning there is two ways of which the DMC can support your business whilst at home with us.

Start up support
We are home to Launchpad*, a business support service focused on supporting anyone in Barnsley to start up their own business, as well as providing fully funded support to businesses with up to 10 employees in Barnsley. Why not see how Dan from Awesome accessed that support for his business in the DMC below?

Dedicated Key Account Management Support 
For those slightly larger businesses, or expressing growth potential, being part of Enterprising Barnsley also means our residents can access support through a dedicated Key Account Manager. Take a look at how Judy, our Enterprising Barnsley Key Account Manager has helped Barnsley based businesses to continue to grow here…

How Else Do We Support Our Businesses?

As well as offering one-to-one support, the Digital Media Centre is home to a wide range of Enterprising Barnsley-funded business development workshops, seminars and events from online marketing and digital law to HR issues and tender writing. Check out our business events programme here.

Our latest range of support can be found through the TEAM SY project, this is a regional programme here to help you navigate the complicated and confusing web that is the tech startup ecosystem.

If you are a tech entrepreneur at any stage, and may be wondering what business support is available in the region, we can help. Our DMC team is actively involved in the project, so feel free to ask us more about it.

The DMC is particularly focused on supporting enterprises in the creative and digital industries – but our business support events and activities are open to all. Enterprising Barnsley support is another reason why our DMC business community is buzzing with ideas and confidence – and why we believe it’s a great place to do business.

Our Enterprising Barnsley team are based in the DMC on the ground floor, or can often be found in the co-working area at DMC 02. Simply come and say hello to find out more, or visit

*Launchpad is supported financially by the European Union and has attracted £2,934,330.75 investment from the European Regional Development Fund as part of Europe’s support for the region’s economic development.
