KickStart 2020 Roadshow

The Converge Outreach Team will be travelling across Scotland this October and November to promote the launch of the 2020 KickStart Programme to staff and students across all of Scotland’s Universities and Research Institutes.

If you have an early-stage, innovative idea and are embarking on the first steps of your commercialisation journey, then this is a fantastic opportunity to find out about more about the KickStart programme and how it could help you.

Our Outreach Team colleagues, Lissa Herron and Adam Kosterka, will be hosting workshops, drop in sessions and 1-2-1s explaining everything you need to know about the Programme, how to apply and what our judges look for in a successful application. They are also on hand to discuss your specific business proposition and can provide tips and advice on how to improve your proposal.

Check out our events listing below and use the registration links to book your place. Alternatively, email the team for further information.
