Ahead of VentureFest Tees Valley taking place on 22nd May, we look at the local firms taking part in the Innovation Showcase and what makes them so special…
Revolutionising how people interact with charities, Discover Donate shifts the notion of charitable giving away from just donating money, and away from ‘shock’ imagery. It allows users to search charities in need of specific skills or goods, and pledge what they want to the causes that matter to them.
If you’re want to see the product in action or talk about being involved in the business as it grows, or if you’re a charity and want to see how you could benefit, go and meet them as part of the Innovation Showcase at VentureFest Tees Valley.
VentureFest Tees Valley is free to attend and takes place on Tuesday 22 May, 2018 at Wynyard Hall. Bringing together business leaders with funding and innovation experts, VentureFest features talks from:
· Mark Chapman, chief engineer of The Bloodhound Project, a British-led collaboration using a 1,000mph World Land Speed Record attempt to inspire the next generation to get involved in STEM subjects
· Tim Ryan, head of life-sciences firm Epigem
· Sharon Lane, who started her career as an apprentice and is now general manager of Tees Components
