Save the date: Venturefest Bristol 2013 – 14th November

Venturefest Bristol 2013 the premier event for technology business activity in the city region, will take place on Thursday 14th November at the UWE Conference Centre, North Entrance, Frenchay Campus, Filton Rd, Bristol BS34 8QZ.

This free, all-day, event is aimed at SMEs looking for funding opportunities and support; investors looking for new opportunities; and researchers looking to commercialise their work, as well as larger companies looking for opportunities for collaboration.

Venturefest Bristol 2013 will feature inspirational speakers and practical workshops, with space for the South West’s innovative companies to tell their stories. Attendees will be able to pitch for funding, learn new business skills, make vital contacts and meet with like-minded people to discuss ideas.

Entrepreneur Jonathan May thought last year’s event “provided fantastic networking opportunities”, while trademark attorney Simon Stanes summed up the day as “entrepreneurs picking the brains of IP experts; investors finding out about new business ideas; business advisors meeting new clients; and start-ups showcasing their innovations. All-in-all, a busy and informative day.”

This year, Venturefest Bristol promises to be even better, with more networking opportunities, inspirational speakers, workshops, clinics and innovative companies from the South West.
