Sensor City offers 10 SMEs chance to win £10k growth package

Sensor City

Liverpool technical innovation centre Sensor City has launched a competition to give 10 SMEs the chance to win a fast-track growth package worth up to £10,000.

The package is designed to help start-up and small businesses to scale and boost their competitive advantage and innovative capabilities.

The project is part of Sensor City’s commitment to creating a UK focal point for the development of sensor technology, while building a community of companies at the forefront of innovation.

The growth packages include free hot desk and co-working space within Sensor City for six months, official membership status, credits for use of event space and access to specialist laboratories.

Successful businesses will also get access to Amazon Web Services’ Activate programme, which provides them with access to the technology infrastructure they need to scale. 

Dr Joanne Phoenix, interim executive director at Sensor City, said: “The growth package is a fantastic opportunity for start-ups and small businesses to leverage the specialist equipment and technological expertise we have in-house at Sensor City, which will help them to rapidly prototype their ideas and innovations.

“Using AWS will also provide the services these businesses need to scale-up, while increasing flexibility and reliability, so I’d encourage SMEs across all sectors to consider applying.”

Eligible companies must be a registered company of SME status, work within the sensor or IoT sectors and have an existing product or be looking to develop new ideas.

Submissions are encouraged locally, nationally and internationally and should be completed by 5pm on Friday 22nd February.
