An exploration of how the souths creative industries work with our investors to create new opportunity and drive innovation. Hosted by Sarah Duckering, in this session we will hear from a selection of hand-picked speakers that will share their experiences, opportunities and advice on the matter. The session will end with a Q&A where you can ask any questions you have and share your own ideas on the subject.
Session two – The changing face of innovation funding.
Hosted by James Ford, this expansive session will explore stories from the front line of innovation, giving delegates a unique insight into how to fund, scale and support their ideas to turn them into a business. A range of speakers will cover a variety of current funding trends. The session is a must for anyone interested in investing in new ideas as well as people looking to fund their innovation.
