Welcome to WINN

‘Great things happen when people get together’

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.

Innovation happens when we are inspired
