A bootcamp designed to give businesses in Worcestershire the tools and knowledge they need to kick-start a new wave of eco-friendly technologies has been officially given the green light.
The scheme, which is aimed at both start-up and scale-up businesses in the area is funded by the UK Community Renewal Fund. It will see the development of green technologies that can help businesses adapt to new markets and regulatory frameworks.
Councillor Helen Dyke, Leader of Wyre Forest District Council said: “We are delighted our proposal to run the Betaden Tech Bootcamp has been accepted.
“The bootcamp will be a great opportunity for local businesses to learn so much about zero or low carbon tech and cleantech development, helping support the county’s growing involvement in this globally essential sector.”
Gary Woodman, CEO, Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership said: "We are excited to bring Betaden to the Wyre Forest to trial a business support and development programme focused on clean technology. We will be looking for local companies who have ideas to join the six months programme, which will develop new products, new software and ideas and accelerate these to a position where they can be marketed and sold."
