Venturefest Bristol 2013Venturefest Bristol 2013 is a free, not-for-profit event aimed at helping innovative technology businesses to grow. This annual networking event brings together entrepreneurs and SMEs with investors, large corporates and business support providers to enable the commercialisation of new ideas and technologies.

The event will be taking place on Thursday 14th November at the UWE Exhibition and Conference Centre, Bristol and registration is now open.

Lloyd Peto, from Nanoscope Services, attended last year’s event. He said: “There were a few key organisations that we knew we wanted to speak to – SETsquared, Silicon South West, the Microelectronics iNET, business mentors, funding organisations – but we never had the time to really understand what they did, or to visit or arrange meetings. We saw them all in one day at Venturefest!”

Innovative companies and entrepreneurs are also invited to apply for a place in the Innovation Showcase – a special exhibition space at Venturefest Bristol 2013 where these companies can showcase their business idea to the Venturefest audience.

Jason Matthews, from Lifecycle Technologies, one of last year’s Innovation Showcase companies,  not only met business mentors and other business advisors at Venturefest but also came away with several sales leads. He said: “Because of the people who come to Venturefest and the way the day is set up, it is the sort of event where these serendipitous meetings just happen. Thanks to Venturefest Bristol, we will soon have our first UK-based customer.”
