Startup Meetup Barnsley – powered by DMC Barnsley and Transform SY

Where Barnsley’s entrepreneurs and startup enthusiasts get together!

About this event

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!


12:00-12:30 > Arrivals and lunch

12:30-12:35 > Introduction to Startup Meetup Barnsley and its purpose

12:35-13:15 > Needs – every meetup participant can come up front and share what is it they are currently looking for – are they validating their idea, looking for a co-founder, raising investment – and then the crowd can signpost them to relevant organisations, places or people

13:15-14:00 > Networking

Join us for a time of interesting discussions, forging new connections and building a community!

Barnsley DMC 02 have also kindly offered the opportunity for you to use their co-working space before and after the event, so why not make a day of it?
