Free ‘Innovation Summit’ to get businesses thinking

A guide to innovation for business will be given at a free breakfast event being run by the D2N2 Growth Hub next Thursday (October 29).

The Innovation Summit will run from 7:30am to 11am on Thursday, at the Nottingham Conference Centre (pictured) in Burton St, Nottingham (NG1 4BU). The event will begin at 7:30am for breakfast, with presentations beginning at 8.15am. There will be an opportunity for business networking from 9.50am to 11am.

A D2N2 Growth Hub presentation will offer case studies on Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire businesses which are already are innovating to access fresh markets, expand trade and create new jobs.

The Growth Hub, which was launched in December 2014, is a free and impartial support and advice service for businesses across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

It is part of the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership, which promotes economic growth and jobs creation across those areas, with the help of Government and European funding. Its over-arching target is to help create 55,000 private sector jobs in its area over ten years (by 2023).

Promoting innovation among businesses is a key commitment of D2N2’s Strategic Economic Plan, its strategy for economic growth. Actions to help innovation are further set out in D2N2’s Time to Innovate report; published in October 2014 following research by Nottingham Trent, Nottingham and Derby universities.
