Innovate East – Develop your ground-breaking ideas and accelerating your journey to market!

Date and time: March 2, 2021

Organised by: UKRI - Innovate UK

Venue: Online (all day 2 & 3 March)

A UKRI and Innovate UK event - make your ground-breaking business idea one of the rising stars of the east with funding, University know-how and outstanding R&D resources.

If you have a small innovative business, or if your ambition is to start one,  register for a free place to find out how Innovate UK, our partners and universities in the East can support you in developing your ground-breaking ideas and accelerating your journey to market.

We can help you to test your idea, test the technology and test the marketplace. We can guide you on protecting and exploiting your idea, your “intellectual property”. We can help to find grant funding, loans and investment for innovation that fit your project and your business and give you advice on writing the strongest application or making the best pitch that you can.

Find out about the networks of support and ideas, the vast body of knowledge and R&D facilities that you could access. If your idea is already taking off, learn how we can help you to manage that innovation and the growth of your business, to find the right markets here and overseas.

Register to hear from 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. Attend our expert workshops that will guide you in writing winning applications, on securing funding and investment, identifying and protecting your valuable IP and how to succeed in international trade.
