Innovation Network and ‘Creating Innovative Leaders’ Programme launch event

Venturefest offers a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs, innovators and investors to chat informally, share ideas and develop new partnership.  This is a rare chance to tap into the expertise offered by Microsoft, Wayra and the Business Growth Hub to supercharge innovation across Greater Manchester. They can offer specialist advice on how to bring creative thinking, latest technologies, and access to facilities enabling small and medium sized enterprises to accelerate and grow.

This event will launch the Innovation Network – a dynamic, interactive online web portal where innovators can connect and navigate through the wider innovation ecosystem, accessing a knowledge sharing platform.

It will also announce the ‘Creating Innovative Leaders’ Programme - a workshop series, giving access to practical innovation tools and processes which will take your business forward and beyond. The skills you and other leaders gain will help you to identify opportunities for innovation and develop an innovative culture within your organisation.
