Innovation Bridge raised in Central Bedfordshire

expertise-landing-innovation-gap-illustration10-1060x445Inspiring Partnerships are pleased to start working with Deyton Bell to manage the European funded Innovation Bridge project.  Through the 14 month project, Central Bedfordshire Council, Cranfield University, Lloyds TSB and the University of Bedfordshire, will deliver low carbon business growth via specialist innovation and technology focussed business support to 90 SMEs in the Central Bedfordshire.   It’s an exciting an opportunity to make another contribution to the development of the place in which my family live and work.

Steve McAteer, from Deyton Bell, and I will be co-ordinating the partners to deliver the project so it meets the needs of the customer businesses and offers the right blend of knowledge from the project partners to local small businesses.

The project has only a year to run in practice so we need to reach out to potential customers quickly and effectively.  The partners will bring their own customer and clients of course and there will be marketing and social media to stimulate interest.  We are also keen to reach local business networks and promote this opportunity to receive up to 12 hours of free advice.

Do you own or work in a small business in Central Bedfordshire and think that you would benefit from free business advice which may include research, consultancy, action planning and workshops?  If you do – or others in your network may – then do let me know and Steve or  I will get back to you.

Look out for the formal marketing but if you are happy to be a trailblazer and help us test out the systems and customer journey we would love to speak to you.  If you network would like further information or a presentation then do let us know.

With best wishes
