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. Enterprising Barnsley is the business development arm of Barnsley Council and is dedicated to helping businesses grow and create new jobs across the borough. Some of Enterprising Barnsley’s business advisors are based right here at the DMC. To find out what help and advice is available through them – our resident businesses just have to knock on the door and ask.

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

If you’re just starting to think about setting up a new business in Barnsley, then a specially-designed programme of support is available to you through Enterprising Barnsley’s Launchpad service, again, based here at the DMC. Read more here. You don’t have to look far to see it’s success either! Julies Ground Hand Pulled Coffee cart is one of our very own clients who we supported from the very start and we love nothing more than watching her smash it! (And drink her lovely coffee).

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.

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.
