Tech City UK Adds Courses to Digital Business Academy

Tech City UK has announced new content for its Digital Business Academy programme.

The programme offers access to education, offering free courses to anyone in the UK who wants to start, run or join a digital business.

The content for the new course has been provided by Founder Centric and the academy now offers nine courses online.

Gerard Grech, Tech City UK CEO said: "Campus life and entrepreneurship are not mutually exclusive. Digital Business Academy represents a revolutionary shift in attitude in how we approach learning and accessing the right opportunities in a fast-moving industry.

"From canvassing digital businesses in Tech City and across the UK, we recognise access to talent is an issue and we are tackling issue the head on."

12,000 people have signed up to the platform since its launch, and 26% of these have completed the course.

Richard Denys, recently appointed head of the programme said: "The fact that so many people are taking and completing courses shows that the UK is embracing a truly entrepreneurial culture.

"The course completion rates have been double the industry average and we are seeing a real appetite for access to tangible digital business skills across the UK. With the addition of extra course material from Founder Centric, I'm incredibly excited to see the next phase of DBA and the digital ventures our course participants will embark upon."

Founder of Centric, Devin Hunt said: "At Founder Centric we're always looking for the best ways to teach honest, practical entrepreneurship. Joining forces with Digital Business Academy dovetails perfectly with our core mission and we are delighted to support the programme with brand new course material.

"We're excited to start creating the next phase of the Digital Business Academy and can't wait to see how participants use it."
