    This session is 7 of 8 as part of the TwinklHive Introduction to Entrepreneurship business programme.

  • Following on from a successful week of virtual events last November, we’re keeping the Festival flame burning with more online events from the 17th to the 21st of May.

    In 2020, we took the Sheffield Digital Festival online to ensure that events could go ahead despite the pandemic restrictions. The transition was a great success, attracting a broad variety of events and attendees from near and far. We want to build on that success with another virtual event and in the hope that, as we get towards the end of the year, we will be able to hold events in person again.

    The theme for May 2021 is β€œRemote Control” – giving an opportunity to explore the technologies, lessons and impacts we have all experienced from many months of restriction, but also allowing for creative ideas and expression.

    Sponsorship opportunities now available
    We’re delighted to announce that BJSS and Sheffield City Council have already committed to being headline sponsors for the Festival. We’re very grateful f...
