So here at WINN we have been doing some AMAZING things and we wanted to share an update with you our wonderful community so you can get involved with us.

So here at WINN we have been doing some AMAZING things over the last month and we wanted to share an update with you our awesome community. Not only can you get involved with some of these things but you will also know the latest information from our team and the teams we work with.

What does connection mean to you?

Whether it's having a coffee with a friend, chatting with a colleague, or working as part of forward-thinking team, connection means something different to us all.

Over the last 18 months we haven't been able to connect with people in the ways we want. The Connection Project is all about bringing the Worcestershire community together through little cards.

The Connection Project

Head over to the Innovation Platform now to find out more and submit your connection card!

Proof of Concept

Worcestershire Proof of Concept (or POC) is an ERDF grant fund in partnership with Central Technology Belt that has been designed to support local businesses to develop innovative new products and processes. Support is offered to applicants that aim to investigate, advance, protect or commercialise early-stage innovative business ideas.

The programme now offers grants of up to £100,000, representing 40% of the total project costs; with all costs being external to the company and are claimed retrospectively.
