Innovate UK KTN: Women in Innovation: Building Success, 2019
Dates: 20 March 2019
Location: Belfast, UK
In 2016 research found that just 14% of applicants to Innovate UK funding competitions were women.
This was despite the fact that success rates between men and women were largely equal. Since the first Women in Innovation awards launched in May 2016, this figure has increased to 24%, but we need to go further.
As part of Innovate UK’s second Women in Innovation programme, KTN will be running four Building Success events in Glasgow, Cardiff, London and Belfast. The events will include practical workshops including a Grant Writing Masterclass, finding out exactly what an investor is looking for, KTN’s Innovation Canvas and Market Validation. There will also be talks from keynote speakers, a look at the funding and finance landscape with upcoming opportunities, and a panel session with successful women entrepreneurs from the region. Most importantly these events will provide attendees with plenty of opportunities to network with their peers and learn about the support available to them in their region.
Full details of the Meeting are available on their website.
