WINN: Innovation Launch Pad

Are you a future-thinking Worcestershire business passionate about innovating and creating? Do you understand how innovation can drive growth, productivity, and your competitive advantage? Why not learn more from cutting-edge innovators and subject specialists about how these ideas can work in your business? The WINN Innovation Launch Pad is your mission, should you choose to accept it.

Programme Itinerary:

This programme is comprised of two mission critical phases. The first, based at mission control* brings likeminded entrepreneurs into an exploratory space, where they can create, develop and define new ideas. During the course of the day businesses will:

  • Hear the latest thinking from top innovators
  • Receive 1:1 exploratory business coaching
  • Share the space with like-minded entrepreneurs
  • Explore and develop their mind set, ideas, and goals in breakaway spaces
  • Select the specialist support required in phase two

The second phase of the launch pad is 6hrs of bespoke professional support delivered at your premises by specialist advisors. Worlds away from unhelpful generic advice, this support will be tailored to your business. Accelerate at warp-speed toward long-held goals or new ideas! The advisors you work with can be selected from a team of professionals with diverse specialisms, ensuring you can access the expertise you really need- when you really need it.
