The key aim of the NanoMicroClub and its networking meetings is to focus on bringing together nano and microtechnology companies, and providing them with an excellent opportunity to network with selected corporate members and key mentors from leading companies. The one-day workshops will be between 9am – 5pm and will consist of a mixture of presentations, seminars and networking opportunities. Participant companies will be provided an opportunity to present their technology in a confidential and informal setting.
The overall purpose of the Nanomicroclub is to create a support network for pre- start-up/spin-out, and early stage technology enterprises. This network operates by enabling young technology companies to meet and share insights into their experiences in growing a technology company, whilst also linking with business advisors, mentoring organizations, and technology end users.
Essentially, the aim of these meetings is to focus on bringing together nano and microtechnology companies in order to share their experiences in growing a technology business, and providing them with an excellent opportunity to network with selected corporate members and key mentors from leading companies (who can provide advice on a range of issues i.e. IPR, legal issues, marketing consultancies etc).
