BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, promotes wider social and economic progress through the advancement of ICT science and practice.
At the Entrepreneurs Specialist Group our vision is that “everyone can be a successful entrepreneur”.
We offer an expert Tech Mentoring Programme to support entrepreneurs on their journey, and a forum for them to network with experts from established and emerging technology enterprises, accelerators and other start-up bodies, academic institutions and fellow entrepreneurs.
We also offer a CTO-in-Residence Programme for Incubators and Accelerators. The CTO-in-Residence can bring wide experience of the types of issues the CTOs might face, as well as access to the subject-matter specialists within the BCS Organisation. Thus the startups benefit from having external, independent, objective thinking from someone at arm’s length to the business.
We are committed to engaging with entrepreneurial start-ups and communities to enable successful entrepreneurship and innovation for the benefit of society and business.
Our group’s mentoring and learning resources already serve an influential community of over 70,000 BCS members, as well as non-members, whose views and experiences are shaping digital innovation and helping to ensure that the IT profession plays a major role in economic growth in the UK and around the world.
