Event description

Description

The Leeds Beckett University Innovation Network is a series of breakfast events in partnership with The Yorkshire Post. Events focus on innovation as a key driver for growth and sustainability – as well as the challenges faced by businesses looking to innovate.

In addition to hearing from expert speakers, the Innovation Network offers a great opportunity for knowledge exchange and to gain new business contacts. Events are free to attend and are targeted at businesses, policy makers and anyone interested in innovation, technology and future trends. The next event will address Making Export Easy.

This breakfast event will give you an idea of what support and funding opportunities are available to businesses along with tips and tools on how to grow your business through export. The event will also provide you with an insight on how other businesses have used export to grow their business, as they share with you their story.
