Blenheim Chalcot are thrilled to be sponsoring Hack24 this year. We’re excited about the level of tech talent that we’re seeing across Nottingham and the surrounding areas and so seeing this played out across a single day really demonstrates the vibrancy of the tech scene and we’re proud to be a part of it.
