WhoKnewport – Commercialising Innovation - A festival of Innovation Event
Wed, June 21, 2017, 9:15 PM – 11:30 PM BST
Join us at Platform as part of Wales Festival of Innovation 2017, we will be discussing some of the innovative developments taking place right here in Newport.
Newport (South Wales) is on the way up. Behind the more obvious regeneration is a fast-growing technology revolution, led by a set of industry leading SME innovators. Focussing on the global market, they’re sometimes better known by their customers around the world than at home. And what better form of innovation to discover, than that which creates value, solves problems and leads commercial and economic growth.
Come to this session to meet these entrepreneurs, find out where and how the innovation ‘spark’ started, the journey to commercialising it and learn from their experiences. Engage in interactive workshops to explore their world and see how innovation, coupled with market-leading expertise, commercial development and determination is creating a ‘digital revolution’ in Newport.
