Join us for this month's Business Growth Lunch at IT Lab in Salford to hear from guest speakers and network with business leaders from across Greater Manchester. This month, the spotlight is on innovation and how diversification can grow your business.
Our guest speaker Belinda Beaver, director of Ag!tare will share how innovation enabled her company to evolve and create SWOT UP®, a digital workplace tool which was celebrated at the NHS Excellence in Supply Awards North West 2015.
Venturefest Manchester 2016
We will also hear from Hub director Richard Jeffery on what Venturefest means to the North West. On Wednesday 21st September, we welcome hundreds of innovators, entrepreneurs and investors from across the North West region to Bridgewater Hall. This year's event follows the success of Venturefest Manchester 2015 which saw 700 attendees and Salford-based digital agency Formisimo crowned winners of the Innovation Showcase competition.
What will you come away with?
Belinda will describe how the advice and guidance from the Hub's Innovation Team helped her and her business partner, Rob Taylor-Brown, create SWOT UP® to combat the implementation and reporting issues associated with traditional workplace surveys.
There will also be an opportunity for informal networking with business leaders from across Greater Manchester and Hub advisors to find out more about the fully-funded support available.
