New business support programme set to propel UK telecoms sector to new heights

UKTIN logo

As a thriving hub for innovation and connectivity, the UK and its businesses are in pole position to transform the telecoms industry.

To nurture this undertaking further, UKTIN (supported by SETsquared) is delivering the newly formed Telecoms Support Programme to help pioneering businesses in the sector accelerate their growth.

For many, this support could not come at a better time. As technological developments continue to evolve and advance, new players are entering the sector with fresh perspectives, innovative services, and new solutions to transform the industry as we know it. But telecoms remain a complex and competitive market. This comprehensive programme grants businesses fully funded support through a range of Innovation and Investment Workouts and a dedicated member network to engage with funding opportunities, industry news and more.

Delivered online by the University of Bristol, a delivery partner in UKTIN, the two workouts allow the time and resources for businesses to explore key areas for growth, led by a team of experienced mentors with backgrounds in digital innovation and telecommunications.

For those keen to position their business for funding in the future, the Innovation Workout is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about emerging opportunities in the UK telecoms market and begin working on a strategy to scale your businesses. Meanwhile, the Investment Workout will help you better understand the investment landscape and develop a strategy that positions your company to attract the best investors.

The two-day-long workouts will cover a breadth of insightful topics including:

  • How to identify patterns for growth within and outside of your business
  • What makes a strong business model and how can you improve yours?
  • Market dynamics to drive profit
  • The current investment landscape within the telecoms and digital markets
  • When is the right time to seek investment for your business?
  • Investor readiness
  • How to plan a multi-stage investment campaign

Simon Bond, UKTIN Lead for Translation of Research Framework and Director of Bristol Innovations said: “The acceleration of advanced digital technologies will trigger exponential growth in the telecoms sector, and UK start-ups and their entrepreneurial founders must play their part in this. The support available through UKTIN is a fantastic opportunity for our telecoms businesses to prepare for this global market and to take their place among the next generation of leading high-tech innovators.”

Businesses interested in joining the Telecoms Support Programme are encouraged to join the UKTIN Innovation Platform.

Investment and Innovation workout dates are available throughout 2023.
