Membership

Sheffield Digital does not receive any public sector funding – we want to make sure the organisation is sustainable and stays independent.

The generous support of our founder members has allowed us to get the organisation to its current position – now we need your support to take things to the next level. To go beyond where we are now, we want to create a proper (paid) team to carry out the activities that will keep the organisation running and do the work that will turn plans into realities.

We have proved that there is value in providing a focal point and voice for Sheffield’s digital community. We are now the go-to organisation when local and regional policy makers want to connect with digital businesses. We are representing the needs of digital companies on issues relating to education, skills and talent. We are promoting the city’s grassroots organisations and its businesses. We are helping people to connect and collaborate, to start up and to grow.

We’ve blogged about our plans for the rest of this year. If you agree that this activity will be valuable to the digital community, please demonstrate your support by becoming a member.

Membership is open to individuals and to companies – there are more details below. We’ve tried to keep membership as simple as possible; you can choose the type and level of membership you feel is most appropriate. If you really like what we’re doing and want to give us an extra boost, then become a “Friend” by subscribing for more than one year – you’ll see this option when you choose your subscription level.

Who can be a member?

Individuals  – anyone who’s interested in digital. You don’t have to be working or studying in the industry (and you don’t need to know how to code).

Companies – Company membership is for businesses that produce or provide digital products or services as a core part of their operation. If you are a non-digital business and would like to support us, please see the information about becoming an Associate Sponsor.
