Smarter innovation to drive growth – business support event

June 10 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

Business innovation can be the implementation of new ideas, creating dynamic products or improving existing services. Innovation can be the catalyst for the growth and success of your business, helping you adapt and grow in the UK and global marketplace.

However, we understand that knowing what support is available to your business and how to access this can often be confusing to navigate, especially for smaller companies.

Innovate UK has come together with the Leeds City Region local enterprise partnership to offer a free one day event for the Yorkshire business community, particularly those businesses in Leeds and surrounding areas, together with organisations that support business innovation; to help delegates learn more about what assistance is available.

So come along to hear about how these opportunities will support your business and learn what help and guidance is available both nationally and locally, and how to access it.

Aims of the event

To help participants:

  • Understand where to go for funding to support innovation
