Business Growth Through Innovation: The tools you need to make it a reality


For many businesses, innovation is the lifeblood for success.

Innovation can help a business not only find its place in a market, but also help them to lead it.

With the proliferation of new technologies rapidly gathering pace, companies that innovate find themselves future-proofed to the evolving technological and manufacturing landscape.

To help businesses equip themselves to fully utilise their innovative potential, USW (University of South Wales) Exchange will be holding the ‘Business Growth through Innovation’ seminar on the Tuesday 23rd July. The event is free to attend.

At the event three firms will be speaking, these include;

  • Celtic Innovation Solutions
    Developing innovative solutions for business challenges to stimulate growth
  • LimestoneGrey
    R&D tax credits
  • Darwin Gray
    Intellectual Property

What can be expected from the speakers?

Celtic Innovation Solutions has over 25 years’ experience transforming organisations and maximising their profits through innovation and development of disruptive technologies. Celtic Innovation are experts in accessing R&D grants.

For those already investing or looking to invest in R&D, LimestoneGrey will be providing an introduction into R&D tax credits and how businesses can claim back up to 33% of R&D expenditure.
