Last chance to register for today’s innovation seminar
The former apple CEO Steve Jobs once said “innovation is the ability to see change as an opportunity not a threat”. Excelledia Ventures is looking for the next big (or small) idea/business to come from Yorkshire with its Innovation for Everyone Everywhere competition by Dezign Space.
To mark the launch of the competition TheBusinessDesk.com in partnership with Excelledia is bringing together experts from across the region to discuss what is already happening here, share their own innovation journeys and highlight why being innovative and disruptive needs to be encouraged across all sectors at a special event at Nexus this afternoon.
Attendees at this afternoon event (4-6pm) on 5 July, hosted at Nexus in Leeds, will hear from a number of speakers including Andrew Wright, chairman AW Hainsworth and chair of the Innovation for Leeds City Region committee; Richelle Schuster head of innovation at the Leeds City Council; Matt Robinson, head of nations and regions at techUK, Gary Woodhead, co-founder of Curveblock; Barry Singleton from Nexus, and Mark Burns, MD at Excelledia, with more to be announced soon.
Alongside the discussion, representatives from Excelledia will be on hand during networking sessions to share more information about how to submit an idea to its Dezign Space platform, with the team clear they “want to hear from anyone with a great idea for a digital business”!
