Carbon Law Partners are thrilled to be taking part in this year’s Venturefest.  The investment and collaboration event is set to return to Wales’ SWALEC Stadium, Cardiff, for its third consecutive year on 28 September 2016.

This year’s Venturefest Wales event will focus on breaking through the common business barriers which Welsh business leaders and entrepreneurs have identified are holding them back. It will also bring together investors, academics, entrepreneurs and innovators to create meaningful business partnerships.

Having conducted market research to understand what Wales’ business people view as the main barriers to growth and success, this free event will tackle issues surrounding the six key business themes identified including: sales and business development, planning and forecasting, people development, marketing, recruitment, and technology. There will be a major focus on funding for innovative ideas and entrepreneurial businesses.

In the lead up to Venturefest Wales, organisers have announced the first wave of speakers who include the first ever supersonic record breaker and renowned entrepreneur, Richard Noble OBE, who held the land speed record for 14 years between 1983 and 1997. Amid the low risk culture of today’s world, Noble specialises in developing high risk ventures and will explore the business benefits of original and unconventional thinking.

In addition to key note speakers, workshops and panel debates, Venturefest Wales will offer delegates the chance to view and test the products and services at the cutting-edge of Wales’ business scene, discovering some of the best people and investment opportunities the region has to offer.

Delegates can also expect an environment that blends businesses of all sizes from start-up, growth, SME and corporate, together with universities, government bodies, investors, consultants and representatives from professional services, with a view to connecting delegates with like-minded visionaries to share knowledge, ideas and networks.

Come and visit the Carbon team on stand 36 – where we will show you that some of the best things in life are free!!
