Join Steve Ramsay, Director of the Microsoft Enterprise Technology Center – Boston and speakers from the US and UK, for a truly interactive conversation on ‘Resourcing for Innovation and Idea Incubation’.

Business accelerators will highlight routes-to-growth and will contrast this approach to that taken by large scale operations.

Participants will gain an understanding of what has successfully worked for well known high-growth companies in Boston and Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, what resources are immediately available locally and in the UK, make connections with incubators and innovators from across The Pond, and (potentially!) identify areas of opportunity for business their own growth through learning acquired and connections made with the speakers.
