Climate-KIC and Innovation Birmingham have the pleasure of inviting you to the Supporting Green Business Exchange event.
The purpose of the event is to exchange good practice and promote co-operation between those supporting the growth of green businesses across the UK and Ireland.
Many programmes and initiatives have emerged in the last five years that help nurture climate-friendly entrepreneurial talent, start-ups and SMEs. The urgency, however, demands that this effort should be joined-up, co-operative and comprehensive.
The Supporting Green Business Exchange will be an opportunity to identify who is working in this area, learn from each other about innovations in how support is being delivered, hear about green business funding and find opportunities to enhance individual services through partnerships.
During the meeting, there will be an option to showcase your programme or initiative through a 3-minute presentation.
If you require any guidance on travel plans or recommended hotels, please do not hesitate to contact us.
