‘Imagine that you are a small business owner who is trying to grow your business. You know that you need to develop new technologies, but you don’t have the resources or expertise to do it on your own. The DIATOMIC accelerator program is like a “growth accelerator” for small businesses. It provides you with the resources and support you need to develop new technologies and grow your business.’ – Digital Birmingham
