Whilst there’s been an explosion in equity funding for UK software businesses, product-focused businesses have been somewhat left behind. With the establishment of the British Design Fund, as well as a variety of hardware-focused Accelerators and Incubators, the tides are turning. CRL’s Design Festival event will consist of a range of industry experts offering practical, tangible tips from industry experts on how to fund, market and develop your idea or business.
As well as presentations, we hope this will be an opportunity to get know our team and residents better, as well as further immerse yourself in the world of hardware. We will also be featuring several of our CRL members, who will be offering insight into their product development journey, from the early design conceptual stages to manufacture, sales, and further investment. This will be an opportunity to learn from those that have turned their ideas into their careers, as well as network with a room full of other creators, designers, funders, marketers and BD experts.
Pizza and beer will be provided throughout the evening!
