Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business

Is your Business Equipped to Innovate to Success?


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 digital technologies rapidly gathering pace, companies that innovate find themselves future-proofed to the evolving technological landscape.

To help businesses equip themselves to fully utilise their innovative potential, Limestone Grey will be holding the ‘Innovation for Success’ seminar on the 16th January.

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

  • Business Wales (Accelerated Growth Programme)
  • CEMET (University of South Wales)
  • LimestoneGrey
  • Hugh James Solicitors

The firms involved have given some information on what attendees can expect from the seminar.

Business Wales’ Accelerated Growth Programme (AGP) will be answering the question, ‘How can the AGP help your business?’.

The AGP is funded via the Welsh Government and is a specialist business growth programme. They provide high level coaching, mentoring and professional support for businesses that have high growth potential. This potential is defined as businesses with significant job creation, investment needs and international trade opportunities.

CEMET, or the Centre of Excellence in Mobile and Emerging Technologies, believe that innovation is a vital part of business growth. They support businesses seeking to create new products, solutions or services via collaborative research projects. They will be discussing how SMEs can join forces with a dedicated R&D team to provide future shaping projects and services.

For those already investing in R&D, LimestoneGrey will be giving an introduction into tax credits and how businesses can claim back up to 33% of your R&D expenditure. LimestoneGrey are an independent firm of Chartered tax advisers, who work exclusively in R&D tax credit claims.

Hugh James Solicitors, who are in the top 100 UK law firms, will be speaking about intellectual property. In particular they will be defining what intellectual property means and what protection businesses might need.

The event will be held in the Barclays Eagle Labs in Cardiff between 9 and 12pm on the 16th January and attendees are invited to book here.
