Product development – from idea to market launch

CleanTech Business Network

Thursday 23rd October 5.00 – 8.00pmAntenna Centre, Beck Street, Nottingham, NG1 1EQ


Four local enviro-entrepreneurs discuss the process by which they have researched, developed and commercialised their product ideas. Our speakers cover a wide range of environmental products;

  • Sam Pearce a Notts-based design engineer who has reinvented the wheel. Sam secured £60,000 in crowdfunding to launch loopwheels – a revolutionary bike wheel that replace spokes with in-wheel suspension.
  • Laura Porcu and Darren Bacon from Lindhurst Innovation Engineers – designers of a modular anaerobic digestion plant that can be used on farms to create energy from agricultural waste.
  • John Harvey, Neehoy – developers of a recycling and furniture reuse app which is currently being trialled by 2 NHS trusts.

At this event the speakers will discuss:

  • Where their product ideas came from
  • How they funded the initial research and development phases
  • What support have they been able to access?
  • What are the key lessons they have learnt along the way?
  • What advice would they give to other entrepreneurs who are embarking on a similar product development journey?

This is a joint event with Next Business Generation and will be followed by a buffet and a networking opportunity. The event is free to attend and is sponsored by Browne Jacobson. Click to register (
