The UK has a known challenge with Productivity – it’s vying with Brexit at the top of the economic agenda. The Government has just launched its’ Industrial Strategy which looks to address the challenges, largely by encouraging investment in R&D. What part will UK SMEs play in closing the “Productivity Gap” and what barriers do SMEs have to overcome when investing in R&D – and how?

We expect this to create some excellent debate, and the session will be chaired by Steve Folwell, CEO of LOVESPACE based at 60 Gray’s Inn – a ground-breaking, disruptive player in the personal storage sector. We will gain insight from businesses that are significant investors in R&D and obtain a view from both Government Agencies (such as the Intellectual Property Office), and commercial investors.

This is also your chance to network with other business owners looking to capitalise on their IP, experts on R&D funding, IP specialists and specialist Funders.

 Evening Seminar Timetable:

  • 6.00pm to 7:00pm (Networking Drinks and Canapes)
  • 7:00pm to 7:45pm (Panel Discussion – Recorded for Facebook “live” broadcast)
  • 7:45pm to 8:00pm (Audience Q&A)
  • 8:00pm to 8:30pm (Networking Drinks Until End)

Informed Funding’s Finance Seminars are aimed squarely at business owners. Our seminars focus on a critical underlying challenge faced by leaders of growing businesses in the UK.

At these seminars we do something different. Our seminars involve ‘live’ case studies, informal panel discussions, Q&As and networking.

As part of our seminar series, Informed Funding facilitates limited 1:1 workshops where attendees can apply to receive independent assessments of their business plan and strategy – these are always very popular.

We build in time for attendees to really question speakers to help ensure each attendee gains a tangible learning that will impact their business.

Registration will open upon full event timeline announcement
