#CassInnovate 4th May 2017

Innovation is key to companies competing in today's economic climate. Cass Innovate has been designed for individuals who wish to develop the skills to turn ideas into action. Whether you work for a big company or for yourself, whether you're an engineer, artist, IT specialist or a designer, it really doesn't matter. What matters is that you are interested in the possibilities that enabling a creative climate can create for you or your company and that you're interested in finding out more about what it means to be an entrepreneur.

At Cass Innovate, you will have the chance to hear from, learn from and interact with entrepreneurs and innovators at every stage of their journeys – from fledgling start-ups to fully fledged global giants. The conference will showcase the work of staff, students and alumni from the Masters in Innovation Creativity and Leadership and MSc in Entrepreneurship, as well as friends and colleagues from a broad range of innovative organisations.

Attend Cass Innovate and learn how to hone your entrepreneurial skills and creative capabilities!
