Venturefest Oxford

With the forward trajectory on re-opening the economy and society, and with a fair wind, we can now look forward to a Venturefest in 2021. We are planning for an in-person event, while also recognising that there will likely be demand for on-line access; Venturefest 2021 will therefore be a blend of live audience and live-stream content.


Venturefest Oxford 2021 will be a half day conference on Thursday 25th November.

Experts in Conversation

With Covid-related lockdowns, travel restrictions, cancellation and postponement of conferences and events, business development activities have had to change over the last 15 months.  Business relationships and partnership activities have to be developed and maintained on line and lead generation has also changed fundamentally.

In this series of conversations, we explore the shift that has taken place in business development, drawing on the experiences of three different Oxfordshire-based companies: The Electrospinning Company, Enara Bio and Saietta.  Through these discussions, we explore how each company has changed its approach to business development and consider how Covid has changed the way we work, looking back over the last year, and looking forward beyond 2021.

Looking forward to Venturefest Oxford 2021

As Venturefest Oxford will take place within weeks of the COP26 conference, you can expect to see local business leaders reflecting on the low carbon and sustainability agenda.

We will also be looking forward to ensure that Oxfordshire continues to be at the forefront of enterprise, innovation, development of cutting edge technology and new industries.
