The top 3 priorities for innovators: funding, marketing and focus

May 21, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

1. Is it difficult to find funding for an innovative enterprise?

Less than you might think. Explore the range of funding available for all stages of commercialisation and learn how to access it.

2. Is it important to have a marketing plan?

More than you might know. Discover the full meaning and power of marketing before your competition does.

3. Is it wise to keep a broad development focus?

Riskier than you might realise. Understand why a versatile innovation is a double-edged sword and ensure you’re targeting the right market.
