Venturefest is back in force and this year it’s better than ever. On the 14th November, dive into a day of FREE seminars, workshops and networking opportunities with key influencers, financiers and tech entrepreneurs. As social media partners, Noisy Little Monkey will be in attendance with Jon running a social media clinic.
What is Venturefest?
Venturefest is an amazing opportunity for you to learn top tips from business coaches, meet investors and network with potential clients. Set up by our friends at Science City Bristol in partnership with the Technology Strategy Board, Venturefest aims to connect the science and technology community in and around Bristol.
With funding from the University of Bath, Bristol University and UWE, Venturefest is aimed at anyone who has an early-stage technology business idea and is looking for support and advice to get that idea off the ground. Again did we mention entry is free?
