Glasgow City Council has launched a new fund to help increase and enhance tech ecosystem “market square” activity in the city by supporting providers to deliver in-person tech events and conferences in Glasgow.

Aimed at further strengthening Glasgow’s already flourishing tech sector, the council will provide a grant allocation of up to £15k for eligible organisers towards the costs of delivering events that attract both UK and international tech businesses and employers, talent, investors and the tech diaspora to Glasgow.

The subsidy is for professional events physically located within the Glasgow city boundary. Eligible projects may include networking events, conferences, founder education sessions or investor readiness and introduction events.

The Tech Ecosystem Event Subsidy is now open for applications. It will close to new applications on 20December 2024 or when the budget is fully allocated (whichever is earlier). For full details including eligibility criteria, or to apply, please click here.

This project is part-funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
