About this Event

The Super Connect Series 2019/2020

This is a national tech initiative powered by Empact Ventures in partnership with Hays UK & I to facilitate collaboration and/or funding between tech startups & scale-ups with larger companies (e.g. corporates, brands, SMEs) and funding providers (e.g. investors, grant and loan providers) based on mutual interest.

Since December 2017, there have been 13 successful Super Connect events run in 5 UK cities including Pitch Days and Venture/Learning Labs at some of the leading tech spaces, corporate offices and universities across the country with over 50+ corporates/brands and 100+ funders.

In October 2019, we are expanding our curated Super Connect events to 11 cities across the UK through to June 2020 in partnership with Hays with support from 75+ partners including Barclays, Microsoft, City Fibre, WorldFirst, Future King Ventures, Ying De Group, UnLtd, Seedrs, Angels Den, Syndicate Room and over 70+ others.

Super Connect Bournemouth (AI & MedTech)

On 20th November 2019, our Super Connect Bournemouth for MedTech & AI event will be held in partnership with Hays and hosted with Bournemouth University, sponsored by City Fibre, Dorset LEP and UnLtd.

The event brings you together with people and organisations to support your business development, innovation sourcing and/or fundraising interests through our match-making process including:

  • Super Connect Sessions (9am, and 12pm) where we will recommend to you the right people, organisations, decision-makers and/or funders that you should meet that match your registered interests (e.g. innovation / funding interests and collaboration outcomes of interest) shared with us prior to the day. Upon arrival at the event you'll be informed by email of your 5-9 super connections which you can find throughout the day with the help of our 'Wall of Faces' and 4 Super Connectors who can make warm introductions. After the day, these introductions will be made by email from the next-day up to 2 weeks after the event where possible.
  • There will be opening talks from Kosta Mavroulakis (Founder & CEO, Empact Ventures), Martin Pardey (Director, Hays), Finn Morgan (Business Engagement Manager, Dorset LEP), Lucy Cooper (Manager, City Fibre Bournemouth) and Roland Singer-Kingsmith (Venture Manager at UnLtd)
  • Our Key Note speaker is Chris Stening (Consumer Director, City Fibre),
  • Throughout the day in the morning and afternoon there will be up to 9 AI and MedTech powered tech startup / scale-up pitches who will be pitching for collaboration and funding opportunities
  • There will be a fireside chat moderated by Kosta Mavroulakis (Founder & CEO, Empact Ventures) with our guest Simon Bourne (CEO of My mHealth)
  • The day will close with a Discussion Panel chaired by Matt Hughes (Editor-in-Chief, Top Tech Business), David Priestly (Chief Digital Officer, Vitality UK), Crystal Dennis (Digital Innovation Catalyst, Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group), Lisa Curtis (Editor-in-Chief, Entrepreneur & Investor Magazine) and Roland Singer-Kingsmith (Venture Manager at UnLtd)

Important to Note for Attendees

  • Registration is Essential: To ensure that you are able to attend you MUST register on this Eventbrite page to be allowed to attend and registration will NOT be possible on the day. It is not a networking event that you just show-up to, it is a curated and facilitated event focused on creating aggregate impact for all involved
  • Registration Information Required: We will match you with other attendees based solely on your registration and therefore the quality of the super connections proposed will depend entirely on the quality of your answers to our questions
  • FAO Tech Startups & Scale-ups: If you fit into this category, please DO NOT register for the SME ticket, fill in the associated ticket, and failure to do so will not guarantee your entry to the event. Tickets for startups and scale-ups are made available on a first-come first-serve basis from our limited allocation.
