Idea to Market: Finance and Innovation Support for SMEs

From grants to investments, together with complementary advisory services, this session will provide an overview of the range of support available to help get your next product or service to market. Many companies are not aware of the assistance available, therefore innovation, supply-chain, access to finance and internationalisation support will be discussed, with many of these services free to UK businesses.

Adrian Allen will be speaking in the following theatres:
