‘It’s not just about the Coffee’ …… or was it ????

Bristol and Bath Science Park hosted the first EIN-SW ‘It’s not just about the Coffee’ Business Breakfast on Friday 11th October. The EIN-SW members were given 210 seconds to present their ‘Problems’ to a group of carefully selected ‘Problem Solvers’ following a short presentation on how to make a really good impression if you are selling your idea or service and a ‘goody bag’ filled with freshly ground coffee and biscuits to take back the office from the EIN-SW team.

The objective of the event was to connect members of the EIN-SW with each other who may share similar problems and hopefully find solutions as well as practice their pitch. Products being presented ranged from personal alarms, rubber bonding solutions, ice cream machines and disability chairs with solutions required for the export market, manufacturing, funding and food grade materials to name a few. One delegate wanted to know ‘what are Nano- bubbles’?

The feedback from the attendees was very positive Charlie Harry from Lick me I’m Delicious said ‘I expected to meet some of the contacts who I had met before and a few others. In fact I met many new and useful contacts, it was a room full of people who I wanted to talk to!’ and Justin from Minus Engineering ‘Great Event for me, it was nice to meet other shed dwellers’!

The next Business Breakfast will be held in Wiltshire College Lackham on 6th December 2013 Engineering People…Manufacturing Success, attendees will participate in group networking and have the opportunity to network and gain advice about R & D tax credits, intellectual property, funding and R & D.
