Innovate2Succeed encourages SME innovation at local business event

Innovate2Succeed, the training programme managed by coaching and training providers Oxford Innovation Services (OIS), will introduce its fully-funded, one-to-one, tailored support programme at two key networking events this September, as part of its launch.

Welcoming interest in the programme, Innovate2Succeed will attend Nucleus Expo at the University of Southampton Science Park on Wednesday 21 September 2016 at 10.00am – 4.30pm, to engage in discussions that champion innovation and entrepreneurial spirit within Hampshire.

Showcasing the importance of innovation within business, the one-day event will include inspiring keynotes, engaging panel discussions and VIP guest speakers, along with workshops from local businesses on how to create and achieve innovation. Attendees will also have the opportunity to have an informal one-to-one networking discussion with leading experts in innovation.

The bespoke support provider will also be present at Hampshire Chamber AGM & Milestones Tour at Milestones Museum Leisure Park in Basingstoke on Thursday 22nd September 2016 at 2.00pm – 4.45pm. The event will see businesses from all over Hampshire come together to discuss innovations, growth and other key aspects of running a successful and sustainable business.

Innovate2Succeed is designed for SMEs with ideas for growth but who need help to harness more value from ideas.


By adopting a tailored and adaptable approach, Innovate2Succeed’s specialists help businesses make better decisions with confidence through understanding their specific marketplace, planning for growth, harnessing ideas, managing the innovation process and developing an innovation culture.

Launched in May 2016, qualifying SMEs in the Hampshire and Surrey Enterprise M3 LEP area will receive full access to GROWTHmapper®, an in-depth diagnostic tool created and developed by OIS to help businesses achieve their ambitions.
