This webinar was an opportunity to find out about the networks of support and ideas, the vast body of knowledge and R&D facilities that you could access. There were some great insights into how to exploit innovation and the growth of your business, to find the right markets here and overseas.

There were sessions with people who have taken advantage of all this support to get their great ideas off the ground and into the marketplace, as well as from the experts who have helped them to do that. This included over 10 masterclasses to help improve the quality of applications to secure funding as well as how to succeed in international trade and find new partners or investors.

This event is organised by Innovate UK, the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership, Venture Fest South and KTN, in partnership with the Catapult Network and Business growth hub networks.


Held across March 8th and 9th, this two-day event offers a packed schedule of workshops and masterclasses covering access to funding, finance, business support, insights and more.
