Venturefest South’s annual showcase, #VFS23: Festival of Innovation is a place for the brightest minds and big thinkers to share experiences, insights and knowledge.
Its objectives are to build the reputation of the South region as a great place to innovate and scale; signpost resources, information, and ideas that growing companies need most; offer young entrepreneurs an inspirational platform; help established businesses explore ways to scale up and give primes or anchor organisations a way to engage with SME and innovation supply chain. The event also provides early-stage businesses zero cost promotional opportunities to share their ideas and innovations. This year, agenda items will debate and explore some of the biggest themes affecting and driving innovation, entrepreneurship, and business growth.
Ashley Parkinson, SME Engagement Manager at the National Composites Centre will be speaking at the “Business Opportunity Support & Growth – Innovate UK unpacked” session taking place at 11.00am at the Innovate UK Hub. He will also be at hand throughout the event to discuss the NCC’s end-to-end engineering services and dedicated support available for businesses of all sizes.
