Exeter College Coffee Morning

Join us at Exeter College, where we are engaging Exeter College students about the industry and making them aware of opportunities here in the South West. There will be three industry speakers presenting information about their job and their experience within their industry:

It is a chance for you to meet, interact and network with the college students (all specialising in IT or gaming), both before the presentations and afterwards during an hour networking session at the college café.

Trademark Workshop

Event Timing: March 10th 2020, 10am-2pm
Event Address: Kaleider Studios, 45 Preston Street, Exeter, EX1 1DF

Event Description:
Stephens Scown are running an innovative session exclusively for TechExeter and Digital Exeter members aimed to help tech businesses deal with a key issue which they often leave until too late: Trade Mark Registration. During this session they will walk you through the trade mark application process and you will have the opportunity to file your own application.

Many businesses do not realise the need to register their core business names, product lines and brand names as trade marks until it is too late. Not all marks are registerable so, before signing up, our expert team will be in touch to make sure you are eligible.

There is a one off cost of £200 plus VAT for this session (this is a massive 60% saving for our members!). Official filing fees will also need to be paid (£170 for the first class, £50 for each additional class); there is no VAT on official fees. Following the application, we will be appointed as your agent on the register and will keep you updated on the progress of your application

Please fill out the form linked below to register your interest and Stephens Scown will be in touch with further information.

NASA Space Apps, Oct 19-20th 2019

Wow, what an amazing weekend! Check out our 60 second video:

Tech Exeter and The Met Office are proud to bring the NASA Space Apps Challenge to the South West. 2019 marks the eigth year that the Met Office has hosted a Space Apps event, and this year is going to be bigger than ever!

The weekend will be about meeting new people and solving interesting challenges together. Don’t let the ‘Apps’ part put you off, the best teams are often the most diverse teams in terms of age, skills and experience. We have seen great projects made entirely from cardboard!

The Space Apps 2019 site and registration links are available at https://2019.spaceappschallenge.org/locations/exeter-devon/

We had an amazing time last year!

Big Bang South West

We had an absolute blast at the Big Bang South West event!

6,000 students descended onto Westpoint Arena on the 25th June for an event celebrating all things science, tech, engineering and maths (STEM) for 7 to 19 year olds.

Along with our friends at 2times.do , we setup our GAME>PLAY “PONG REWIRED” game where people could play using our wacky controllers, or build their own out of tin-foil!

We also had the Unity game sourcecode available and saw a variety of interesting edits to the game come from the students!

Exeter College Coffee Morning

We held our first ever mini meetup at Exeter College with speakers from TechExeter and Digital Exeter – we often struggle with engaging young people so we decided to take our meetup directly to the students!

Al Mclintock, Industry Placement Liaison Officer initially came to speak to TechExeter earlier in the year to talk about T-levels, and she was thrilled with the idea that we could run a version of our meetup aimed directly at the students

After an introduction from Al and Myself (centre above), we had talks from Sarah Marks (right) – Head of Marketing and Communications at Rezcomm, and Rick Timmis (left) – Engineering Manager for Dell Boomi.

After the talks, the students came along to a networking session where we had a dozen members of our tech+digital community available for students to talk to face to face.

It was a wonderful morning with a great buzz – our next one is in the autumn term and we hope to repeat the success of this joint venture between us and the college!
