Its's Back! ‘Great Things 2019’ celebrates the diverse range of innovation within the county and looks to bring together the brightest local minds in the fields of innovation and business in an open and collaborative environment.
Organised by WINN (Worcester Innovation) the all-day event will take place at Worcester Warriors’ Sixways Stadium between 6.45am and 8.30pm on June 18th 2019, with a wide range of workshops, talks and interviews open to attendees.
The day will begin with a ‘meet the buyers’ breakfast event hosted by ‘Find It Worcestershire’, with a focus on how assistive technology can be developed for use in social care environments. This will be followed by a busy schedule of workshops hosted by more than 25 business leaders, the majority of whom are based and operate within the local area.
An evening session will open into a special event that celebrates the four priority sectors of the Local Enterprise Partnership (Advanced Manufacturing, Agricultural Technology, Cyber & IT and Medical Technology) and will also give budding entrepreneurs the opportunity to gain vital funding for their business ideas.
The event will launch WINN’s ‘Make it Happen Challenge’, offering innovative local start-ups the chance to apply for funding worth £15,000 for their business, with a £5k cash prize supplemented by expert business support from specialists in marketing, finance, legal and other key sectors.
The ‘Great Things 2019’ event, which has free admission, will also feature stands hosted by local organisations and businesses, free parking and complementary food and mocktails at the evening session.
Jess Antley, Senior Project Manager at WINN said: “The ‘Great Things’ event provides a fantastic platform to bring together the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit that exists in Worcestershire. With a fantastic selection of speakers and workshops we’re looking forward to our biggest and most successful event yet.”
