Posted on: 22/02/2019

Following incredibly successful conferences in 2017 and 2018, the founding partners of Venturefest South have announced the third showcase event.

Venturefest South brings together top talent from the region to demonstrate technologies and innovations, allow start-ups to pitch for investment and match entrepreneurs with the right organisations to take their businesses to the next level.

The event will take place on March 29th at the Ageas Bowl in Hedge End, Southampton, and will feature expert speakers, innovation demonstrations, investor pitching sessions, the Young Entrepreneurs’ Zone, informal open mic pitching sessions as well as workshops and opportunities for networking. KTN will be delivering a series of workshops on accessing funding and finance, formatting business plans, capitalising from KTPs, successful partnering with Catapults, the Innovation Canvas and the impact of Diversity in practice.

Tickets are available here. To access a free ticket, enter the promotional code VFestKTN.

The fast-growing innovation network in the south is supported by a number of corporate sponsors including BDO, Natwest and DSTL. All the money raised from sponsorship and ticket sales will go towards creating opportunities for early stage business and startups to exhibit for free at the conference.
