Barclays is partnering with Sheffield Hallam University and Object Form, to provide digital events in the city.

Barclays’ Eagle Labs scheme will run digital events through this month and next, including mentoring and hands-on experience for entrepreneurs, students and creatives.

“We’ve created the Barclays Eagle Labs because technology is transforming the speed at which start-ups can grow and scale. Simply having access to a 3D printer can now help people turn a clever idea into a business success overnight, and by providing practical resources along with our financial expertise we intend to help many businesses succeed,” explained Steven Roberts, strategic transformation director at Barclays.

“Eagle Labs Live is a new collaboration between Barclays and Sheffield Hallam University. It aims to support and educate the local community, providing an opportunity for entrepreneurs, students and the wider community to embrace new technologies and techniques and become familiar with the Eagle Lab concept before a permanent Lab is launched in the City in 2018.”
