Breakfast Session Fast Track: Innovation funding for ambitious businesses in the Midlands Engine

Event details
Innovation suport for businesses in the midlands


Innovation is key to business success. The ability to exploit new ideas, technologies, processes or business models ahead of the competition can bring big rewards in a world that is rapidly changing. The UK government has recognised this for many years and has been increasing the support to businesses wanting to innovate and grow.


Accessing this support, however, can still be confusing and complex. That’s why the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, and the British Business Bank have come together to help you.


At this breakfast event, you’ll get a quick overview of the support available to help your business grow.  As well as a tasty breakfast, there will be 3 x 20 minute presentations covering:

  • Innovate UK grant funding, presented by Peter Dirken, Innovate UK
  • Midlands Engine Investment Fund, presented by Lewis Stringer, British Business Bank
  • Innovation Loans, presented by Nigel Walker, Innovate UK


The morning sessions concludes with a networking lunch with the Midlands business support providers and the event finishes at 2pm.


Who should attend?

Driven businesses across the Midlands Engine looking to grow, particularly welcoming companies that have not engaged with us before.


The breakfast event starts at 7.30am and finishes at 9am.  Register on this page for the ‘fast-track’ breakfast event!
