Access to Finance and Growth 2016

Do you occasionally have a great idea for a new product or service? Would you like to see how you can take those ideas and build upon them until that new product or service is available in the market? On 14th September KnowNow will run a workshop at ACCESS TO FINANCE AND GROWTH 2016 held at Portsmouth Guildhall.

Access to Finance and Growth 2016, Wednesday 14th September, Portsmouth

This is a full day event for 500 entrepreneurs designed to help YOU understand different ways of financing and growing your business and to put you in touch with industry experts. The event will take place at Portsmouth Guildhall and the programme includes Key Note Speakers; Workshops; Breakout Sessions; Networking; Pitching, Panel Q&As, Awards and Networking.

The Workshop

We will be running a workshop on Taking Innovation to Market – helping delegates to create a structure for developing their innovations by Empathising with their potential users, defining the problem that their user experiences and creating ideas for solving that problem.

It is designed as a thought exercise that doesn’t need to rely on technology and is relevant for potential entrepreneurs as well as new or established businesses, small and large.

At KnowNow we have created new services and applications both for our customers and also some award winning products of our own such as the 2014 open data prize winning Flood Event Model. We use our project ideas template to evaluate the potential projects that we could work on so that we can either decide to focus on an idea or to let it fail quickly!

Our workshop will run from Noon until 1pm, immediately before lunch. You can book up for the day using the Eventbrite link below
