INNOVATION WORKOUT: Get your business fit for innovation, and ready for growth

Fast-paced and dynamic, this fully-funded workshop will help you identify new areas for growth and innovation.

Brought to you at a time when many founders are adapting their business models to suit a changing and uncertain environment, this Innovation Workout will give you dedicated time with expert mentors to revisit and scrutinise your business model. It will give you the opportunity to consider different financial models, develop new and existing products as well as identify new revenue streams.

The outcome will be a developed business model with a greater potential for investment and growth.

The Innovation Workout is tailored for established businesses with products/services, customers and revenues.

Companies that are out of the area with a strong application may be supported through the Scale-Up Programme. Applications will be assessed on an individual basis.

It’s very much a team sport and is most suited to teams of 2 – 3 from the same company. There is no requirement to be in the same room – the workshop will be organised so you can all collaborate virtually. There is also no requirement to purchase any new software, we’ll take care of the tech and logistics.

“For me, getting advice from these experienced people who’ve done it before was gold dust and I could have paid a fortune for that if the Innovation Workout hadn’t come along. I really enjoyed it because it was like a speed dating of ideas, it forced me to sit down and do tasks quickly.”

Alan Roan, Cervus Defence
