‘Smarter Innovation’, on Monday 10th June in Leeds, is a free event about funding, business support, networking and learning. It’s organised by organisations that are all about helping businesses take off, succeed and grow (Innovate UK, Knowledge Transfer Network, RTC, Nexus University of Leeds, Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership , Europe Enterprise Network and UK Research and Innovation).

UK Research and Innovation, since its launch in May 2018, has awarded approximately 4,600 Research and Innovation grants and supported 52,000 individuals (through grants, fellowships and studentships). You could become one of the people they help.

When you arrive, you’ll step into a new £40m state-of-the-art building, home to Nexus, our host for the day. Nexus is a community of innovators located on the University of Leeds’ campus.

But let’s talk about why you should take time out of your busy schedule to attend this free one day event.

Take your business to the next level with FUNDING
Looking for funding for your idea or business can take a lot of your time away from doing what actually matters. You’ll hear directly from organisations that offer funding, like Innovate UK, about opportunities for you.

Take your business to the next level with BUSINESS SUPPORT
There is a lot of business support available in the UK and Leeds City Region and you‚Äôll find out all about it on Monday 10th June. It‚Äôs quicker than to research online and you’ll also get to ask your questions during 1-2-1 surgeries in the afternoon.

Take your business to the next level with NETWORKING
With around 150 people attending, it’s your opportunity to connect with locals who are on the same journey as you, learn from people who are further along and meet the faces behind local support organisations.

Take your business to the next level with LEARNING
The afternoon is time for practical learning. You will learn practical tips to take your idea to market with a workshop run by experts in the field, Europe Enterprise Network and learn how to secure funding with a Grant Writing Masterclass.
