Worcestershire is an innovative county and through WINN we want to celebrate and develop this.
We believe that great things happen when people get together, which is why we'd like you to join us. We are developing a community of inspirational individuals and brilliant businesses to help the region grow and become recognised nationally as a hub of innovative ideas and projects.
So, whether you want to connect, collaborate, co-ordinate or just be inspired, WINN should be your first point of call.
It doesn't matter whether you want to be innovative with your products, services or processes, or if you just want to celebrate diversity and entrepreneurship. We can help you to showcase your ideas, learn from other innovators and be inspired.
If you want to share your innovation journey or meet with like-minded individuals, why not join us for WINN Wednesday? This networking event is the perfect opportunity to launch new ideas and collaborate with other businesses and innovators in the region.
Sometimes being innovative is just about bringing the right people together or looking at the same things with fresh eyes. So, come along to WINN Wednesday and you'll have the chance to take part in fun, creative tasks and hear from pioneering speakers, because you never know when a new idea will develop!
Join us for WINN Wednesday and we promise you'll go away feeling inspired and encouraged by the great things going on in the region.

We've all seen the videos of life hacks online - hold a nail with a clothes peg when hammering, use a paperclip to organise your desk cables, or use WD40 to stop your bathroom mirror fogging up.
But what about hacks for your business? How to become more profitable, how to save time and effort, how to grow your business! Join us for our WINN Wednesday 'Genius' for a night of wondering 'That's genius! Why didn't I think of that?'

Hendrik Harms lives in Worcester and is a Writer/Director and owner of award-winning production company Harms Way Studios.
He has recently adapted the Stephen King short story 'All That You Love Will Be Carried Away’ and it has joined his previous project ‘The Music Box’ in doing the film festival circuit. Hendrik has also recently opened Worcester’s first film studio, hoping it will bring more productions to the West Midlands. His next step is founding the Worcester Film Festival to add to the ever growing creative hub in the area.
Releasing the genie in us - Learning to let yourself out of the lamp!
There are times in our lives when we surprise ourselves and others as to what we are capable of. When we are really connected and focussed, almost unstoppable. Not only do we feel amazing but we can have the greatest impact in serving those around us. How can we experience those moments, more of the time?
Jonathan, owner at Glassfull, is a personal and leadership coach and creator of the Amazing Mental Health model and well being programme. He says, "I'm an engineer at heart, wondering how things work and how they might work better. I love offering practical tools and techniques to help individuals and organisations realise their potential to improve quality of life, productivity and impact on society".
Changing the world one Idea at the time
Ideas are the currency of any successful organisation! Idea management enables you to gather, manage, develop, analyse and implement ideas that solve real business problems and identify new opportunities, to achieve both innovation and strategic objectives. Every organisation has an army of potential innovators at its disposal, how can we take advantage of that?
Founded in 2011, Wazoku is an innovative SaaS business. Our passion is to help businesses change the world one idea at a time, with our idea management software. Used by organisations such as Waitrose, HSBC and UK central government to help them embed innovation is a core, strategic, everyday capability. Wazoku are working alongside WINN, currently at the pilot and development stage of their ideas management platform, ahead of its 2020 launch.
