Innovate2Succeed and Enterprise M3 Growth Hub collaborate with Fairfax County to host networking event
Innovate2Succeed (i2s), the innovation training programme managed by coaching and training providers Oxford Innovation Services (OIS), will continue to showcase its fully-funded, one-to-one, tailored support programme at an Evening Networking Event on Tuesday 25 October 2016.
i2s are co-hosts with the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (from Virginia, USA) and the Enterprise M3 Growth Hub. The event will take place at the Bombay Sapphire Distillery in Whitchurch, Hampshire, on 25 October at 6.30pm – 9pm.
Key experts are lined up to talk about why it matters to find out how to harness business growth, how to export and manage innovation effectively.
The informal evening networking event will give guests the opportunity to find out what support is available for businesses and who may be thinking of expanding into the US. Guests will have the opportunity to meet the Enterprise M3 Growth Hub team and members of the i2s coaching team as well as Oxford Innovation’s experts on accessing finance. There will be up to 70 similar organisations to meet from the Enterprise M3 region.
Launched in May 2016, Innovate2Succeed is designed to provide bespoke, specialist support for businesses who want to innovate and grow from their ideas. Eligible businesses can access up to seven days of fully-funded, one-to-one, tailored support.
At the event, guests can learn how i2s can support them to create innovative processes, cultures and/or products that help with day-to-day operations, as well as towards future growth plans.
i2s is delivered in collaboration with the Enterprise M3 (em3) Growth Hub and funded by:
- The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), which provide support for SMEs to help them innovate and grow, and
- Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency, which works with companies to de-risk, enable and support innovation.
