VentureFest North East is a free, full-day event focussing on how businesses can grow through innovation, designed to connect businesses, corporates, investors, academics and advisors with specific expertise in innovation.
This year, VentureFest North East has a manufacturing theme. This half-day strand will include a breakfast workshop titled ‘How to make more money’ covering how SMEs can innovate and create a strategy to get the most out of digitisation. Following this there will be a ‘Manufacturers Marketplace made simple’ in which manufacturers can find out what funding is available to them, and make initial contact.
EEF's Membership Director North, Richard Halstead, will be speaking on some of the technological opportunities that manufacturers can embrace to improve their productivity and increase their output.
