INNOVATORS, entrepreneurs and investors from across tech and creative industries will be brought together at an inaugural event.

The Venturefest South event will see top talent demonstrate technologies and innovations, allow start-ups to pitch for investment, and match entrepreneurs with the right organisations to take their businesses to the next level.

The event, set for Winchester Guildhall on March 9, has been developed by a group of founding partners from Carswell Gould, Enterprise M3 LEP, Innovate UK, the Knowledge Transfer Network, Oxford Innovation, Solent LEP, Southampton Solent University, the University of Portsmouth and the University of Southampton. Irwin Mitchell is headline sponsor of the event.

Venturefest South chairman Chris Allington, managing director at Oxford Innovation, said: ‘I’m delighted that this initiative has come together and want to take this opportunity to thank the founding partners for developing and supporting this shared vision.’
