BIG South London Innovation Taster event

South London businesses – come along to this taster event to find out how adopting an innovative approach can help your business grow

As a business founder you’ll have no doubt heard the word ‘innovation’ bandied about. Industry leaders swear by it. Your competitors claim to be doing it. But what does it mean for you and your enterprise?

Innovation can be quite an intimidating word – it sits neatly alongside other buzz phrases like ‘ground-breaking’ and ‘trailblazing’. But what it really means for you is: introducing something new to your business.

That could be as simple as improving a process or extending a range of products or services. 

The benefits of even small incremental changes to the way you deliver your products and services can have a major impact on your bottom line. And who doesn’t want to achieve that in a post-Covid economy?

BIG South London’s fully funded Innovation Support Programme helps business and charity founders to inject innovation and creativity into the way you grow your organisation. Perhaps you’re further down the line and are already seeing the benefits of this approach, but you now need support with the next step of finding academic partners for some research and development.

Whatever stage you’re at, to find out if the programme is for you, come along to this online taster session. We’ll be using real business case studies to demonstrate the value of introducing an innovative approach to your business and the benefits of working with a university.
