How to find us

There's on-street parking nearby Ashford's office, no charge from 18:00


The success rate for InnovateUK grants is apparently 11%, is it worth the effort? Should you use grant writers to put together a grant for you? Collaborative grants - what needs to be considered to make them work? How does grant funding change along the start-up journey? How do you avoid bureaucracy, while satisfying criteria? This time Threads will be hosted by Matt Butcher. Matt has a PhD in Physics and a background in sales and marketing, commercialisation, IP, and project management. He has held director level positions in a number of University spin-outs and is currently CEO of Inductosense. We're at Ashfords offices in central Bristol for this one, meeting from 17:30 ready for an 18:00 start. We look forward to seeing you there. Andrew, Rory and Peter
