About the event
The Black Country Innovative Manufacturing Organisation (BCIMO) is delighted to be hosting the Clean Futures Accelerator’s first cohort Insight Day.
The event is designed to introduce the first cohort of winners who will be developing clean tech solutions for the rail and automotive industries, at the Very Light Rail National Innovation Centre (VLRNIC) and Coventry University respectively, to relevant industry stakeholders (Challenge Setters) and Investors.
For the winning SMEs, the event will provide the opportunity to pitch their solutions to Challenge Setters and potential Investors and receive feedback that will form part of a bespoke strategic delivery plan across the life of their 6-month trial.
For the Challenge Setters, the event will provide the opportunity to view and feedback on the winning solutions and consider how they can work to directly address the industry challenges they identified back in June.
For Investors, the event will provide the opportunity to view and feedback on the winning solutions and identify potential high growth investable businesses within the West Midlands region.
