Programmes: Innovation Masterclass

Uncover the insights to inspire your business

The Innovation Masterclass is a full day of facilitated sessions designed to inspire SME owners who want to think bigger and create new opportunities for their business. Working as part of a small cohort of likeminded business leaders, you’ll be challenged with strategies to develop and implement new ways of working, and offered expert advice and mentoring to help you find the most effective route forward for your company.

Seminars and one-to-one coaching on the Innovation Masterclass are all rooted in research, insight and world-leading expertise from the University of Sussex. You’ll also learn how to apply our unique methodologies, developed over 25 years of helping to grow some of the region’s most innovative businesses.
