Further Information

Event Eligibility: In order to attend this fully funded event your organisation must have registered and have been verified as eligible to receive support through the Digital Growth Programme.  The process of registration is quick and easy and you only need to go through this process once. If you have not registered yet, you can do so via the following link;

Please Note:

  • The SFSY Digital Growth Programme is open to SME businesses within Doncaster, Rotherham, Barnsley and Sheffield, with the businesses need to be paying their local authority rates (if applicable) to one of these councils. The programme can also support sole traders, providing they are within one of the applicable local authority areas.

  • Finally, a business cannot have had more than €200,000 of de-minimis aid within the past three year rolling period.

  • Businesses must have under 250 employees, and cannot have a turnover of more than  €50m and/or have a balance sheet of over €43m. Businesses must also not be more than 25% owned by any other company that is not an SME, whether owned by another company, a parent company or a group of companies.

  • There are a number of sector restrictions to the programme, for example Agriculture, Motor Retail, Financial and Insurance Activities, School-age Education and Human Health and Social Work activities are not eligible for funding through ERDF, and sectors are checked against official company records held at Companies House. (Where possible, if we can see a way for a business to be eligible by adding additional SIC Codes then we will do what we can to point in the right direction – so it is always worth putting in an application and SME Enrolment Form just in-case there is a way we can help).

  • Delegates from organisations registered to the D2N2 Digital Growth Programme are only able to book a place on events located within Derbyshire or Nottinghamshire.
  • We can only accommodate one delegate per organisation on this workshop
