Norwich is an ambitious city that is rapidly becoming a globally recognised digital hub. Full of startups, talent from two top universities and links to other major cities, it’s easy to see why. Groups like SyncNorwich are continually working on driving this ambition through local events - which we love to get involved with.
Organised by SyncNorwich and UEA, Sync the City takes place in November and lasts 54 hours, during which time entrepreneurs, developers, business managers, marketeers and designers get into groups and pitch ideas for new startup companies. Teams form during the event, network with local experts, and develop ideas and working prototypes. At the end of the event, the winning team could receive up to £4,000 to help start up their business.
To foster the growth ambitions of these talented local people, Selesti will be supporting the event as a prize sponsor this year. This means we're offering a free half-day training session on establishing an online marketing presence, delivered by our Search Marketing Manager Seb.
“We’ve attended several Sync the City events and are always amazed by the quality of ideas, vision and talent this city and it’s startups have to offer,” says Ollie Blackmore, our MD and founder.
“This year, we’re delighted to be a prize sponsor offering our digital and technical expertise to the most ambitious winning teams.”
We believe that continuous learning and development is the key to success, which is why we’re excited to offer digital marketing training as a prize. Over the last twelve years we’ve grown quite a bit ourselves, so it’s always a pleasure to help other businesses achieve their ambitions as well.
