Business development support by university experts. FREE to all eligible London-based SMEs.
The University of Greenwich is pleased to host the FLASH Innovation programme, in which university experts will provide business development support to business owners and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to help businesses become more innovative, sustainable and ultimately enhance business growth.
FLASH Innovation offers practical, interactive workshops, innovation coaching, sustainability support services and networking opportunities which are free to all eligible SMEs in the London region.
The FLASH Innovation programme forms part of the Institute for Sustainability's FLASH project, which is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). FLASH aims to help London-based SMEs to have access to the information, research findings and best practice they need to seize the commercial opportunities arising from the move towards a low carbon economy.
Are you a London-based SME?
You are if your business has a London office address, employs fewer than 250 persons, has an annual turnover below €50m, and/or your balance sheet is below €43m.
To join the programme, you will need to complete a registration form and business needs assessment form – these will be made available to you at your first workshop. If you are already a FLASH member via FLASH networks, please provide your FLASH registration number on the booking form.
