We’re delighted to be sponsoring the headline Venturefest South event (#VFS) again for the third year running. The event will be held at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton on the 29th March 2019, and you can get tickets through Eventbrite.
For those unfamiliar with #VFS, the event is a celebration of innovation in the south coast and features keynotes, presentations and workshops from industry leaders, professional advice on starting a business, fundraising and investment, plus opportunities to pitch your business to investors and the wider world.
In addition to the structured event activities, #VFS is an opportunity to network and meet other businesses. These could be anything from fellow startups to business support providers, to local and national government representatives who know about schemes you can take advantage of – and more.
Anecdotally, we’ve used #VFS as an opportunity to showcase our own innovative product Vimsy. This resulted in us meeting Menzies who have been able to successfully make a claim for us within the government’s R&D tax relief scheme, bringing cash back into our business for investment in new developments and innovations. We can firmly vouch for the value of #VFS and highly recommend it to others!
Still need convincing, or simply want to get yourself some tickets? Head to the Venturefest South website for further details. We look forward to seeing you there!
