Future Proof Your Business at Free Innovation Workshop

The D2N2 Growth Hub will be running an Innovation workshop at Nottingham Trent University, Burton Street, Nottingham (NG1 4BU), from 8:00AM to 13:00PM on February 2 (Tuesday), alongside fellow business support organisation Pera Consulting.

D2N2 believes strongly that innovation will be a key driver to help achieve its over-arching goal of creating 55,000 new jobs by 2023 and in October of 2014, published a plan, detailing how local businesses can grow through innovation.
