Event Details

The Leicester Innovation Hub invites you to the first Innovation Friday Online to give you the opportunity to discuss your business challenges and explore ways to innovate and pivot in these rapidly evolving times.

The Hub recognises that in the current situation the continuation of support through online delivery will enable businesses, entrepreneurs, academics and students to network and access support. Maintaining this community through digital contact is important in working together to adapt to this new environment during this period of social distancing, isolation and quarantine.  For this reason, the team are currently exploring ways for us to work together online in our growing innovation community and to provide timely help and support.

This Friday (27 March) the Innovation Hub Team will provide free/subsidised sessions for Leicester and Leicestershire SMEs (part-funded by European Regional Development Fund) for you to book in advance, to work through and address your challenges, bringing expertise and support as required. Although, if this is needed sooner please get in touch.

Please let the team know your business challenges and if you are looking at new markets, looking to pivot your business or need to consider other ways of innovating. We have sessions available throughout the day and you can book by emailing the Hub at LeicInnovation@le.ac.uk

The sessions can cover a range of topics and work through a specific challenge. e.g.

  • How do I innovate and pivot my business model?
  • Do I need to revisit my social media strategy?
  • How can I enable the health and wellbeing of my workforce?
  • Are there opportunities in engineering and manufacturing to take advantage of?
  • How can I use my business data to help the respond to the current situation?
  • How can Space Park Leicester benefit my business?
  • What help and support is there for a start-up idea I’m developing?

The Team will be engaging with LinkedIn and Twitter throughout the day and please do join the conversations with #InnovationFriday #Leicinnovation #ourstochange

They are keen to know your thoughts and ideas for future events and can tailor these events to your business needs and in helping to addressing current challenges. Please let the Hub know on social media through Twitter and LinkedIn and do not hesitate to reach out with any questions at LeicInnovation@le.ac.uk
