  • The Innovation Alliance for the West Midlands has played a pivotal role in the development and continued success of the annual Venturefest West Midlands events. Now in its 6th year, the Alliance continues to drive all of the event logistics and secures the programme and speakers for VenturefestWM. The last of these draws heavily on the very essence of the Alliance, its network of associates that are actively willing to support and promote the Innovation Agenda in the West Midlands.  To be honest without IAWM there would not be a West Midlands Venturefest offer.

  • Having attended the Innovation Alliance Speed Mapping event in December for the first time, I was interested to find there was such a wide scope of innovation activity currently taking place across the Region.  It was a great opportunity to be able to engage with a wide range of colleagues from organisations such as WMCA, Medi-Link and Birmingham Enterprise Community, who are all driving innovation activity in interesting ways.
