Last March we were looking forward to exhibiting at Venturefest South Festival of Innovation, however like many other in-person events, the festival had to be cancelled due to the pandemic and the growing threat of Covid-19.
We are however thrilled to announce that we are once again due to exhibit at this years event on the 21st October. We are really excited to share our innovative approach to digital donation technology with like-minded organisations and people from across the South of England.
What is Venturefest?
If you’re not yet familiar with Venturefest, it is the fastest growing innovation programme in the south showcasing innovators, entrepreneurs, investors and businesses from across the region to celebrate our innovation ecosystem, display the latest technology, share thinking and explore ideas.
This one day conference is hugely interactive and enables attendees to mingle with brilliant speaks, attend seminars and workshops and view some of the latest technology.
Venturefest South actually began at a time when other Venturefest networks were closing down – A time when funding was being cut across the UK. The founding members self-funded and developed a new sustainable model making sure that the innovators, entrepreneurs, start-ups and scale-ups in the south region could be recognised and promoted.
For more information on this brilliant initiative, you can head to their website and read all about their mission here.
What’s New for 2021?
Venturefest and its attendees in previous years have come up against the ‘Beast from the East’ and ‘Brexit Day’ with successful events but unfortunately did have to press pause due to Covid. However, despite this, the delegates, innovators, exhibitors and partners are still ful of a positive sense of momentum and eager to get back to it.
Across the events industry we’ve seen huge innovation and tenacity when it’s come to tackling the pandemic. Much moved online and as we started to see restrictions lift, we started to see the rise of the hybrid event.
New to Venturefest South for 2021 is the hybrid ticket – An unlimited amount of places for people are can’t make the in-person event but still want to be a part of the innovation. This hybrid ticket will give you access to a snapshot of the live streamed event, from your living room sofa or kitchen table.
There will also be virtual workshops as well as plenty of pitches, updates and opportunities from across the festival, including partners and sponsors.
Head to their website where you can read the full schedule – Jam picked with brilliant speakers on a range of fantastic topics!
