  • Venture.Community Events Presents the next event in our By Founders For Founders Series: "So you’ve been given term sheets… What next?"

    So you’re a founder with a scaling business and you’ve been raising for months. Finally, it seems the search is over as an Angel, Venture Capital, or Private Equity firm offers to invest in your business. Hooray! They send over term sheets with an investment proposition, an equity valuation and exit terms… What now?

    How can you navigate this seldom-discussed situation? How can you protect your shares and control as a founder? How does this new raise interact with the existing cap table structure and how can you create a situation where all parties leave happy?

    This Venture.Community Event will focus on the holistic picture. We will explore the perspective of the Founder, the Angel, the VC and the legal structure which needs to be carefully navigated to maximise the success of an investment. Join us to understand how each party will approach th...

  • Sheffield StartUp is a lively evening get-together that pulls in the region's top talents from the startup scene. Set in Showroom Café Bar in Sheffield city centre, this event is all about sparking real connections, having insightful chats, and opening doors for teamwork among cool entrepreneurs, potential investors, and folks from different industry corners. With a fun and diverse crowd, the buzz here fuels fresh ideas and sets the stage for future collaborations that could kick off the next big wave of innovation.

  • Our monthly Electronics and Radio club is aimed at anyone interested in electronics and/or radio to drop in and work on or get help with projects.

    Not sure where to start with soldering or want some tips on improving the surface mount soldering on your latest project? Always wondered how to use an oscilloscope? Drop by and someone should be able to help you.

    Interested in finding out about amateur radio and how to get licenced or have a licence and want to check your new radios performance on our equipment? One of our existing licence holders should have all the info you need.

    People of all abilities are welcome to drop by for a chat and work on their projects using our variety of equipment in our friendly space.

  • A guided exploration of the Linux server command line.

    Aimed at absolute beginners. We'll show how to securely connect to a server then we'll work through Bandit, an adventure game set in the command line that progresses step-by-step from the basics to common programs and beyond.

    This will be an in-person event in the quiet lounge of the newly open The Gamer Club, on Bath Lane next door to The Buff Club.

    I'll work through the challenges on the big screen and explain what I'm doing as well all work together though the levels. Join in and play along or feel free to work on your own through the advanced war games and someone there should be able to assist you if needed.

  • We're planning to try some of the beginner/intermediate war games from OverTheWire.org

    Leviathan
    This wargame doesn't require any knowledge about programming - just a bit of common sense and some knowledge about basic *nix commands. We had no idea that it'd be this hard to make an interesting wargame that wouldn't require programming abilities from the players. Hopefully we made an interesting challenge for the new ones.

    Natas
    Natas teaches the basics of serverside web-security.

    Krypton
    The Krypton wargame features encryption and ciphers.

    The games start easily, but get complex quickly - so those that already know their way around will get a challenge too.

    This is a great event to get to know everyone, you can work through the levels at your own pace, or just help out others that are stuck. We'll also talk you through the solutions to help beginners learn.

  • Abstract: NatureScot, in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University, are developing a new tool to facilitate decision makers to take a natural capital approach for managing land at the landscape scale in Scotland. By mapping and modelling how certain land use changes might impact the ecosystem services they provide, decision makers can identify scenarios that maximize benefits for both people and nature. It will be the first tool of its kind in Scotland and will be a geospatial web application, building on scientific knowledge and the existing EcoServR tool for mapping natural capital assets and ecosystem services.

    Speaker Bio: Donya is the Natural Capital Manager for NatureScot, where she leads a team of GIS Analysts and Data Scientists developing an innovative new natural capital tool for Scotland. Donya is an Ecologist who specialises in natural capital valuation, ecosystem service modelling and co-design methodology. She is passionate about nature conservation and the eff...

    Book at ticket now: ti.to



    What is Community Safety?

    The phrase Community Safety can cover a large range of issues. Challenges relating to any of these could be addressed at CTC32. Here are some examples

    * Crime Prevention.
    * Law Enforcement
    * Emergency Preparedness.
    * Public Health.
    * Victim Support.
    * Community Engagement.
    * Environmental Safety.
    * Education and Awareness, etc.

    For each of these thematic areas, we will identify challenges, and how can the application of technology, coding, data, AI and associated approaches help to address those challenges?

    We already have an exciting challenge around the use of Computer Vis...
