Be part of Scotland’s business innovation and growth summit: Venturefest Scotland 2017

Posted on: 19/04/2017

The Venturefest Scotland summit is designed to help high-growth SMEs and ambitious early-stage companies grow through innovation.

Taking place annually in September, the event connects business owners, entrepreneurs, investors and innovators and provides a platform for growing companies to find the tools, advice, funding and contacts they need to take their businesses to the next level.

The event is supported by a strong network of national and regional partners including Innovate UK; KTN; Scottish Enterprise; Highlands and Islands Enterprise; Glasgow City Council and Glasgow City of Science.

This year’s event takes place at the Glasgow Science Centre on Wednesday 20 September 2017. Registration is free and any aspiring Scottish business – in any sector – is invited to attend.

Each year the organisers offer a ‘wrap around’ series of national, co-badged, Venturefest feeder events. They are now looking for event hosts and invite you to take part.

The University of Glasgow and KTN will be hosting a Venturefest feeder event on Partnerships that Drive Innovation at the University of Glasgow on 31 May 2017. This event is for innovators and people who want to be innovators from every, and any, sector. All technologies, academic, industry: the challenges are the same. How can we best capture innovation and turn it into a marketable reality? How can we form partnerships that are broad enough to deliver innovative products and services to market? How can we position our plans to make them fundable by agencies like Innovate UK? Click here to find out more about this event.
