Shape VentureFest North East 2017!

We asked you to help us to shape this year’s regional innovation conference!

We’ve always worked closely with organisations representing the needs of businesses to design our events but now we decided to go one step further!

We’re handing over the design of a new People’s Choice part of the programme to you.

Based on feedback from previous events, emerging technologies was selected as an overarching theme for the session. We then asked you to tell us which specific topics and questions you’d like us to address via a web platform developed by Newcastle University’s computing research group Open Lab.

You voted, we listened! Thanks to everyone who submitted ideas. The two most popular suggested themes were digital disruption and using the strategic template of a business model canvas to innovate. The programming team is now busy building event content around this. Register for VentureFest North East and we’ll let you know exactly how this element of the programme is shaping up!
