Next year Venturefest will go back to the future for the milestone event, going back to its original mission of showcasing the cutting edge work being done across Oxfordshire
In celebration of its 20 years, Venturefest Oxford is moving its annual event to the new Oxford Brookes building next year. Not only that, it is moving from the spring to the autumn and will be on Wednesday September 12 2018, definitely one for the diary!
Venturefest is going back to the future for this milestone event, going back to its original mission of showcasing the cutting edge work being done across Oxfordshire. At the same time it is looking into the future by focusing on Space technologies, Quantum computing, digital health and autonomous vehicles and robotics. All of these sectors have the potential to significantly impact both our lives and the local, UK and world economies.
Venturefest will be offering an overview of the technologies involved, and insight into their applications and a look forward to the opportunities they will create. Local businesses - big and small - will be alongside representatives from both universities, local organisations, government authorities, and a cross section of local support services and investors. The Pitching for Success session will focus on showcasing businesses from these sectors and will expand to not only those wishing to pitch for funding, but also mentoring, skills and personnel.
Registration will open in spring 2018.
