Scale-Up Innovation Workshop

Scale-Up Innovation Workshop

About the Workshop

Hands on and interactive, this fully-funded programme, is designed for growing companies seeking to develop their products, services and innovations.

Delivered with our partners Strategyzer, creators of the Business Model Canvas, this programme has been designed to help participants to explore where their current business model can be developed and refined to create new opportunities to accelerate growth. During the course participants will review their current business environment, customers’ needs and assess opportunities to develop strategies with academic support as part of the SETsquared Scale-Up programme. The outcome will be a developed business model with a greater potential for investment and growth.

The overall programme consists of two webinars on 4 & 12 March and a one day workshop. Attendance at all 3 parts is key.

Find out more from previous workshop participant and SETsquared Scale-Up programme member Mark Williams, CEO at Revoola.

“SETsquared offers a significant financial springboard, with access to investment, industry linked pitching events like the Investment Showcase, and events like the Scale-up Innovation Workshop allow us to check and improve our business model. We have refined our idea a few times, workshops like this have facilitated this process.”

Mark Williams, CEO at Revoola

“The workshop has provided me with a greater understanding of the business model canvas. This is incredibly beneficial; academics need to be business aware and directly feed this awareness back into our approach to research projects.”

Dr Simon King, Research Fellow at The University of Surrey Advanced Technology Institute.

“The workshop identified why the R&D process is essential to empower a company’s business model. Moving forward we will ensure new projects start with the principles put forward from the Business Model Canvas, asking questions aligned with those proposed by the Strategyzer model and ensuring these questions are continually asked as the project develops.”

Micheal Hanley, University of Exeter

“The workshop allowed us to delve into how the business works, assisted our understanding of the business development process and highlighted how market research is crucial when developing new ideas. Working with an expert and academic on the day gave a fresh perspective to our business mindset and assisted the analytic process required to produce the Business Model Canvas.”

Beth Wright, Business Development and Marketing Assistant at TCarta
