The Malvern Innovation Festival

7th - 12th October 2019 , Great Malvern, UK

business mix proudly sponsors

The Malvern Innovation Festival kicks off in October 2019 and this year business mix is the festival’s main sponsor and partner.

Malvern in Worcestershire in the UK has a history in innovation, attracting start-ups and companies looking to scale up – this makes it a natural fit for business mix to partner with – we share the same values and ethos around innovation, collaboration as well as inclusiveness.

This is coupled with the desire to innovate more than ever before, using new ideas and technologies to stay competitive and ahead of the game.

business mix is not only bringing its expertise in innovation to the event – we own the space between the large corporates and the start-up world, working for both sides.

But we‘re also bringing a new dimension to the table and this is our expertise and knowledge across a wide range of sectors, from sports technology to chemical engineering.

For 2019, our priority is to continue to grow our business and network, with a particular focus on our target areas – Sustainability, Cyber Security, Fintech and Sports Tech.

What to Expect.

About our Collaboration.

As the lead sponsor, the opportunity to contribute and be a part of this week long festival is immense. It’s also a great chance for the Malvern Innovation Festival to have the injection of talent and expertise from business mix.

This includes the global connections we have with our associates, partners and clients, connecting the festival with Tel Aviv, Mumbai, Singapore as well as Shoreditch – this is something we know the festival has never seen before. It’s also a perfect opportunity for business mix to amplify our thoughts about innovation and bring the stories about our priority sectors to life.

This is a mutually benefiting partnership between business mix and The Malvern Innovation Festival and we’re proud to support and be part of this special event.

We know this is achievable because in our heart, business mix believes and practices collaboration – it’s our core value. For us we always involve everyone who can bring something to the table.

We’ve built a network on collaboration and The Malvern Innovation Festival helps us to continue collaborating and connecting people.
