Discover opportunities to collaborate with innovators - it's time to get connected!

About this event

Nexus Connect brings innovators together to make meaningful connections, discuss new ideas, share common areas of interest and discover opportunities for collaboration.

For the second event in our brand new series, four more of our members from Excelledia Ventures, Fundamental First, Menken Trials and WeDrifters will be sharing an overview of their businesses and opportunities for collaboration across the Nexus Community, the University of Leeds and the wider innovation ecosystem.

This event provides a fantastic opportunity for all members of the Nexus community to network, find out more about each other and engage with like-minded innovators.

The session is also open to innovators from across the wider innovation ecosystem to expand your network and immerse yourselves in our supportive and vibrant community.

Check out the video above from our last event for a flavour of what to expect in June.
