Partners and Sponsors

Sheffield Digital is an independent organisation and does not receive any public funding.

We are able to do our work thanks to the support of our founders and our amazing community of individual and company members.

We also recognise that a vibrant digital economy requires the support of organisations not directly involved in digital activity and that many of these organisations in the city share our objectives. These are our Partners and Sponsors – you can read more about them below.

If you would like to know more about becoming a Regional Partner or an Associate Sponsor, you can download the information sheet or simply get in touch.
