Science, Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Leicester Business Festival

Event details:

When: 31 October 2019
Where: Curve Theatre, 60 Rutland Street, Leicester, LE1 1SB

As part of the Leicester Business Festival, representatives from LBV and the University of Leicester will give a talk for entrepreneurs and professionals.

Leicester Business Voice (LBV) and the University of Leicester are pleased to host another joint event during the Leicester Business Festival. This year we are putting a spotlight on Science and Innovation based entrepreneurship.

Successful Leicestershire-based entrepreneurs will provide insights into how they have/are utilising science and innovation to inform their business plan, secure grant funding, gain higher profiles and competitive advantage to grow their business.

Delegates will hear from at least two successful Leicestershire businesses about the value they place on science and innovation, and why. Plus, they will gain an overview on some of the innovation support available for businesses.

The presentations are aimed at entrepreneurs, business owners (pre start-up, early sage and established) and professionals (accountants, solicitors, bank managers…)

Guests will benefit from targeted networking with LBV members and learn how to access science and innovation support.
