3 September: Funding Masterclass

Whether you’re a start-up business or a growing SME, investment to launch new and innovative projects is vital. If you’re unsure about what funding options are available to support your business growth, then why not join us at our Funding Masterclass? Not only will we cover the grant funding available through the ATI programme, but we will also look at other funding avenues for businesses based in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

The masterclass will comprise presentations from funding experts covering: funding revenues in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly; R&D tax credits and the importance of business structure; business planning and forecasting - including tips for applying for investment, and crowdfunding and other alternative methods of funding. 

A complimentary networking lunch will be provided at the end of the session.

19 September: Managing an Innovation Project

Is your business looking to bring a new product to market, implement a new process or service, or maybe you want to change your business model? If so, this workshop offers comprehensive guidance and helps reduce the elements of risk surrounding your innovation project. Delivered over two sessions, the workshop covers the tools and correct processes needed to ensure a successful project outcome.

Please state when registering if you wish to attend the morning session, the afternoon session or both for the full day. A complimentary lunch is provided.

24 September: Intellectual Property Workshop

This interactive workshop is facilitated by David Mozely, Specialist Advisor at the University of Plymouth. David is able to provide an overview of registered rights that should be secured (patent, registered design rights or trademarks), give guidance on non-confidential agreements and material transfer agreements, and discuss commercialising, IPR through licensing or the support of a new business venture.

Places are limited for this workshop and it's advisable to book early to avoid disappointment.
