"Gateway to Opportunity": kicking off a new programme of events to support technology start-ups in Sunderland

IBM, Sunderland City Council and the University of Sunderland are supporting the Sunderland Software City initiative, providing business support services and advice to local companies and technology startups through the recently opened Sunderland Software Centre in Sunderland City Centre.
As part of this partnership, IBM will run a unique programme of collaboration and events, the purpose of which is to provide regional companies with insight into the opportunities for technology solutions in markets such as telecommunications, manufacturing and commerce and providing connections to potential customers, business partners and investors with access to international sales and marketing opportunities.
We're kicking that programme off on the 13th December with "Gateway to Opportunity", including a great line-up of technology entrepreneurs and industry speakers including Chris Mairs, early-stage investor and serial entrepreneur; Iain Gray, CEO of the Technology Strategy Board; Tim Broyd, Professor of Built Environment Foresight at University College London; and Rashik Parmar, President of the IBM Academy of Technology.
The event is free, and will be followed by an informal networking lunch; if you'd like to join us please register at
