    VentureFest North East event to celebrate business innovation

    An annual celebration of innovation in the North East is expected to attract hundreds of business leaders from around the region.

    VentureFest North East 2022 is a two-day conference delivered by the Innovation SuperNetwork, which will take place at the Boiler Shop in Newcastle on March 30 and 31.

    The event includes a number of seminars offering tips on business growth, with an online programme on the second day free to access. Participants are encouraged to tailor their itinerary for the day by registering for the sessions that best suit to their business needs.

    Graeme Miller, head of innovation at the Innovation SuperNetwork said: “We are thrilled to offer a hybrid VentureFest this year! It’s great to be back in person at the Boiler Shop on March 30 for our flagship event featuring innovation inspiration and much anticipated networking and collaboration opportunities. But, to be able to bring this second day of online sessions to a wider audience is something we felt was really important.

    “Enabling business innovation through specialist support is core to our offering at the Innovation SuperNetwork and VentureFest is just one of our programmes of activity designed to bring that support to regional SMEs. Our day of online workshops on the March 31, has been developed in collaboration with our partners with the needs of these businesses in mind. I’d encourage anyone who wants to kick-start their innovation journey to register.”

    Sessions on offer include ‘Mission-Driven Innovation: How can we work together to define and tackle important problems in the North East?’ and ‘How to double the size of your business in 12 months.’

    There are also workshops on financial planning, the importance of ESG and collaboration with other businesses.
