The most innovative businesses in Harborough are to take part in a unique virtual event – and more people are being invited to take part.

The Meet the Innovators event is being hosted by Harborough District Council and Harborough Innovation Centre.

It will provide a platform for local businesses to come together and showcase their ideas and innovations.

The event will also help support businesses with access to finance, skills, research and innovation to elevate growth.

A number of businesses and organisations are already lined up to take part.

But invitations are open for other businesses or entrepreneurs to come forward to highlight their innovations.

The online event will take place on Wednesday June 23 from 12noon to 1.30pm.

Cllr Phil King, who leads Harborough council, said: "We have a large number of pioneering and inventive businesses across the Harborough district, many of whom are operating from the Harborough Innovation Centre.

“So this event is bringing some of those together with the aim of helping and inspiring others to find new ways to innovative and achieve success."

Cllr James Hallam, the council's Cabinet lead for the Innovation Centre, said: "We have some very interesting spokespeople lined up for this event.

“But we're also looking for others who may have, for example, adapted to challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic in innovative ways, or who may have useful tips to share with the business community."

Anyone who would like to be speaker at the event should contact Crystal Carter by emailing [email protected]
