Wakefield Business Week 2019 - Innovation Network: Growing the Tech eco-system

If we can create more balanced tech start-ups now, with gender equality baked in, and can promote general gender equality throughout the tech industry, we’re going to make a better technology industry for our future generations. However very few tech businesses are led by women and less than 25% of those working in tech businesses are women. This series of events across Yorkshire will explore what it takes to encourage the growth of tech businesses and how it might be possible to get more women involved.

We will hear from a number of speakers across the week of events including industry experts and tech entrepreneurs. Further speaker details will be available shortly.

The Leeds Beckett University Innovation Network is a series of breakfast events delivered in partnership with The Yorkshire Post. Events focus on innovation as a key driver for growth and sustainability – as well as the challenges faced by businesses looking to innovate. In addition to hearing from expert speakers, the Innovation Network offers a great opportunity for knowledge exchange and to gain new business contacts.

Events are free to attend and are targeted at businesses, policy makers and anyone interested in innovation, technology and future trends.
