What the heck is Startupscale? It’s a “pioneering two-year business experiment designed to accelerate the development of tech startups in Sheffield and across the North of England.” Essentially, it’s a chance to get access to expert mentors, exclusive networking opportunities, and valuable media exposure – completely free-of-charge. It was great to hear James talk about why he and Roaring Mouse decided to run Startupscale as a way to give back to the community.
