Applications for DigitalCity Fellowships, run at Teesside University, close on January 27 and Blair Stent, founder of The Office Above is encouraging those with an idea for a digital business to take full advantage of the scheme.

The DigitalCity Fellowship scheme offers £4,000 to cover living costs for digital entrepreneurs while they develop their business idea or product, as well as industry-specific mentoring from leading business figures and access to workshops, networking events and specialist equipment. www.digitalcityinnovation.com/fellowships
