We're heading to Venturefest Oxford 2019

Hot on the tail of our announcement that we’ve partnered with Prodrive Ventures to launch The RAPID Challenge - a new competition aimed specifically at entrepreneurs and start-ups developing innovative physical products - we’re looking ahead to 11th September and Venturefest Oxford. Once again we’ll be heading to Oxford Brookes University, ready to meet innovators, investors and entrepreneurs as well as celebrating investment, new businesses and new ideas in the high-tech sector.

Venturefest 2019 will focus on Inward Investment Global Growth.  There will be special sessions on three of the areas targeted by the new UK Research and Innovation body; USA, China and India. Alongside this, there will be sessions and a technology showcase around the four Grand Challenges identified by the UK Industrial Strategy; Artificial Intelligence & Data, Ageing Society, Clean Growth and Future of Mobility.

We’re also looking forward to meeting experts from across the Thames Valley innovation sector in the exhibition, as well as the innovation and technology showcases. There will also be a funding and advice competition - Pitching for Success - where companies pitch, across two sessions, to an audience that includes investors, support organisations and individuals. The competition is now open – Apply now!
