Brilliant content and delivery at the 2-day DBAH workshop
Earlier this month the Digital Innovation Business Acceleration Hub held a 2-day growth workshop in the centre of Bristol. Organised by the enterprise team at SETsquared Bath the 2-day workshop was designed to help entrepreneurs or founders of early-stage technology ventures in the digital sector.
The interactive workshop saw a number of early stage tech businesses join the workshop programme for the 2 days.
During the first day delegates were joined by a number of expert speakers and mentors who provided business insights covering off a number of subjects including growth planning, legal considerations and market validation. An interesting panel session took place over lunchtime which was given by entrepreneur and founder of Interactive Scientific Dr. Becky Sage. The day finished with participants summarising their customer discovery canvas.
Day two continued with group speaker sessions before the final all important ‘delivering a pitch’ session. Participants then got to work on their own pitch ahead of presenting to the panel. The day was rounded off with speed mentoring where participants received individual feedback for their pitch from each of the panelists.
Feedback throughout the workshop programme was very positive and everyone who attended felt it was an extremely valuable and informative two days.
The 2-day growth workshop is part of the free support available through the Digital Innovation Business Acceleration Hub which is part funded through the European Regional Development Fund. The programme provides support for startups and existing high growth SMEs innovating in digital technology. It is available for companies in the West of England operating in certain sectors, which include social care, residential care, human health and wellbeing, also audience engagement, entertainment and creative media, ATR/VR and immersive technology.
The aim is to help these businesses grow, innovate and establish lasting research partnerships with the University of Bath.
