Event Details

As part of Innovate UK’s second Women in Innovation programme, KTN will be hosting the fifth Building Success event on the 24th of September 2019 in Manchester.

The day will include:

  • Panel sessions from female founders and investors

  • An introduction to the KTN Innovation Canvas

  • Upcoming opportunities from Innovate UK

  • Masterclass sessions exploring grant writing, market validation and investor readiness.


You will also have the chance to learn about, and interact with, national and regional support organisations that can help take your business to the next level.


We'd encourage female founders and women working within innovation from all industries to attend.

Grant Writing Masterclass
When applying for a grant it often requires a significant investment of time to put forward a compelling case. Yet grants can be a real enabler in realising your innovative ideas and supporting business growth. So, what are the key elements that make a successful grant application? How can you make your application stand out from the crowd and deliver a competitive business case? Find out during this session.


Innovation Canvas
There are many problems that need to be solved on the way to a successful commercial innovation. We need a framework that poses the questions that a company must address to manage a process that is often tortuous and unpredictable. Borrowing from the model of the Business Model Canvas, KTN has developed an ‘Innovation Canvas’, which is divided into conversation blocks focused on the major issues that must be addressed in the innovation process. Join this workshop to apply your innovation and see which areas you need to focus on.


Market Validation
Be equipped with tools and techniques to really gain understanding of your target market. Learn how to build this understanding into your proposed concept. This workshop helps develop a fundamental skill that ensures your concept is aligned with a true market need or challenge. The result? Product development has a clear route to market and the value you offer will be communicated to your customer with conviction.


Investor Readiness - what is an investor looking for?
Are you looking to secure investment to grow your business? In this workshop learn about what an investor looks for, how to find committed and interested investors and how to present your business through a memorable pitch.
