About Technology for Success

T4S is about helping SMEs learn and make the right choices in their approach to technology across their whole business. Ultimately it’s about powering growth.”

Julian Wills, Timewade

Helping businesses get ahead through better use of technology

Launched by Timewade, Technology for Success started as a group of companies at Exeter Science Park sharing practical tech tips.

This quickly grew as more businesses took part and like-minded partners joined. Today T4S offers digital events, tech surveys, guest speakers, new learnings and insights.

There are now more than 200 SMEs who are part of the free to join T4S programme.
