Venturefest West Midlands – a new event and exhibition giving entrepreneurs and innovators the opportunity to meet, engage and discuss products with a national audience of investors – launches for the first time in the region this summer.
The free, interactive event takes place on Tuesday 30 June at Birmingham’s NEC. A programme of in-depth workshops, seminars and lectures will provide small business owners and start-up companies from the area with practical advice, ideas, contacts and funding options. Entrepreneurs from all business sectors – including science, technology and the creative industries – are encouraged to register.
Guest speakers include Sir Peter Rigby, Chairman and Chief Executive of the family-owned portfolio business The Rigby Group plc, and Dr Ruth McKernan, recently named Chief Executive of the UK’s innovation agency Innovate UK.
