15-10-2013 - AcceleratorIndia collaborates with UK-SIN to run UK-India Innovation Showcase event in Delhi

AcceleratorIndia, the premier cross-border business accelerator, collaborated with the UK Science and Innovation Network (UK-SIN) to organise ‘Innovation is GREAT’ showcase event  on 14th November 2013. Organised as part of the UK's GREAT week in India between 11th - 15th November 2013, the "Innovation is GREAT" event brought together leading entrepreneurs, innovative UK companies, investors, funders and researchers from the UK all under one roof.

Designed to enable R&D intensive businesses in India to hear the experiences of the visiting UK delegation and to network with them - the event was aimed at generating new opportunities for joint collaboration. Structured around the themes of the UK Innovation Ecosystem, Innovation opportunities in the UK including clusters, hotspots and most cutting edge technologies and successful UK case studies, the "Innovation is GREAT" event provided a fascinating and detailed picture of the UK's Innovation landscape.

Richard Cawdell, Director, AcceleratorIndia moderated the session on "Successful case studies from the UK", to illustrate how the UK has supported the growth of early stage and growing businesses, including the challenge of matching funding with market opportunities.

A blog covering the event and links to pictures from the event is available here at the UK-SIN blog site.
