BetaDen confirms Tech Tuesday schedule and welcomes new cohort member

Malvern-based technology accelerator has confirmed the schedule for its popular TechTuesday events through to the end of the year.

The free, bi-monthly series is open to anyone interested in the evolving technology landscape, with the most recent online event attracting attendees from as far away as Australia.

The next event takes place on Tuesday 8 September and will be themed Security by Design. Broadcast online, Steve Borwell-Fox, managing director of Borwell, and Nick Tudor, CEO of DRisQ will lead a two-part discussion on creating a secure culture, addressing problems that leave organisations open to cyber attacks and some of the software solutions and products that can mitigate risk, embedding security into IT systems from the off.

The November event will take place on Tuesday 3 November and will focus on 5G and Manufacturing.

Linda Smith, CEO of BetaDen, said: “Moving our TechTuesday events online due to the Covid-19 pandemic has proved a real success with over 70 attendees taking part in our July event and creating a number of new leads for our guest speakers.

 “The November event marks the first of a new series-within-a-series that will focus on the possibilities presented by 5G technology. Providing our members with access to one of the only 5G testbeds in the country was one of the key reasons we decided to base BetaDen in Malvern and we’re looking forward to explaining how this new technology is being developed by a number of local manufacturers and looks set to change the face of manufacturing for years to come.

 “I’m also delighted to confirm that DronePrep, one of the guest speakers at our July event, has now joined BetaDen Cohort 3. The DronePrep team is already involved in a wealth of exciting projects – including delivering medical supplies to remote NHS sites during the pandemic – and we’re looking forward to working with them to help develop their goal of using their platform to help define where it is possible to deliver drone highways in the sky as this exciting technology becomes a more regular feature of our national transport infrastructure.”
