Ben Voysey, Incubation and Acceleration Manager at SETsquared, one of the sponsors of the Start-Ups and Scale-Ups sessions, said:
“The Start-Ups and Scale-Ups sessions will be made up of engaging panel discussions facilitated by entrepreneurs and experienced funders who have travelled the same road and can give up-and-coming businesses and innovators the benefit of their experience. The sessions will be interactive, focusing on key do’s and don’ts, so that delegates will leave at the end of the day with a series of key take-home messages for maximising success with their businesses.”
