Innovation Funding for Ambitious Businesses in the Midlands Engine

Tuesday 30th January 2018 @ 7:30 am - 2:00 pm


Innovation is key to business success. The ability to exploit new ideas, technologies, processes or business models ahead of the competition can bring big rewards in a world that is rapidly changing. The UK government has recognised this for many years and has been increasing the support to businesses wanting to innovate and grow.

Accessing this support, however, can still be confusing and complex. That’s why the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, and the British Business Bank have come together to help you. This event is for innovators and entrepreneurs to learn about the ways in which ambitious businesses can be supported.

Why attend?

  • To help you understand where to go for innovation funding and practical advice on what is available
  • You’ll get expert insight into future trends
  • Connect with potential collaborators
  • Access to expert business advisers
  • Understand what is required in writing a successful grant applcation

Who should attend?

Ambitious businesses across the Midlands Engine looking to grow, particularly welcoming companies that have not engaged with Innovate UK before.
