Merton Chamber of Commerce is pleased to be hosting this first taster session, working with Kingston, Richmond and Croydon Chambers of Commerce and the BIG South London programme.

Thursday 4th November 09:00 – 10:30 & Wednesday 10th November 2021 09:00 –10:30

We encourage any business to attend to find out more about free support available to you to help you develop and innovate at a time when businesses are having to adapt and face many challenges in the current post pandemic phase.

As a business founder you’ll have no doubt heard the word ‘innovation’ bandied about. Industry leaders swear by it. Your competitors claim to be doing it. But what does it mean for you and your enterprise?

Innovation can be quite an intimidating word – it sits neatly alongside other buzz phrases like ‘ground-breaking’ and ‘trailblazing’. But what it really means for you is: introducing something new to your business.

That could be as simple as improving a process or extending a range of products or services.

The benefits of even small incremental changes to the way you deliver your products and services can have a major impact on your bottom line. And who doesn’t want to achieve that in a post-Covid economy?

BIG South London will shortly be launching a new, fully funded Innovation Support Programme, which will help business and charity founders to inject innovation and creativity into the way you grow your organisation. Perhaps you’re further down the line and are already seeing the benefits of this approach, but you now need support with the next step of finding academic partners for some research and development.

Whatever stage you’re at, to find out if the programme is for you, come along to this online taster session. We’ll be using real business case studies to demonstrate the value of introducing an innovative approach to your business and the benefits of working with a university.
