Event description

It’s a long road from having a great idea to getting your product to market with many decisions and challenges along the way. Just like travelling, having a map and a plan for the journey is a real advantage, especially when things go wrong.

No matter where you are on the journey…
• Just starting off
• Looking for funding
• Building prototypes
• Scaling manufacture
• Ready to exit

…bring along your plans, successes and concerns for a one hour review and discussion of specific issues and pointers on ways to overcome them.
