Venturefest Oxford, the successful one-day intensive event which brings together innovators and entrepreneurs with investors has announced a new media partnership with Business & Innovation Magazine.
Venturefest Oxford helps drive the development and growth of new ideas and businesses located in the county, particularly in the high-tech sector.
Set up in 1998, the event now attracts over 1000 attendees and this year it will again be held at Oxford Brookes University’s Headington Campus, on September 11.
The 2019 Venturefest Oxford will focus on inward investment and outward growth and particularly target the USA, China and India — three regions in the sights of the UK’s Research and Innovation (UKRI).
Rising to the government challenge four “grand challenges” identified in its UK Industrial Strategy: there will be sessions on artificial intelligence & data, the ageing society, clean growth and future mobility.
Central to the event will be the highly-anticipated “Pitching for Success” sessions, and alongside will be exhibition space and innovation showcase.
Nicky Godding, editor of Business & Innovation Magazine, said: “We have supported Venturefest Oxford informally for some years and are delighted to now be media partners. Through our magazine, in print and on-line, we will share some of the most exciting ideas that come out of the event and introduce our readers to some of the entrepreneurial ideas on show.”
Mike Foster, Chair of Venturefest Oxford, said: “I am delighted that the Business & Innovation Magazine will be the media partner for Venturefest Oxford 2019.”
