In a busy world, the role of effective networks has never been more important. Research and innovation, finance, vital supply chains, and effective talent recruitment all benefit from connections with like-minded people. From sector-specific fora such as the Welsh Automotive Forum, ESTnet and Aerospace Wales to our overseas network of government offices, networks in Wales add real value to all businesses.
We also work closely with industry, academia and local government to provide tailored network support. And not only does Wales have some of the highest funding and financial incentives in the UK, we also work with partners like the Development Bank of Wales, one of the UK’s largest regional investment companies.
We hold regular high profile business events such as BioWales, and our annual Digital Festival. Wales is also a regular host to business event of all shapes and sizes. Forthcoming events include UK Space Conference 2019 and Creative Cities Convention 2019.
Coupled with active industry bodies such as CBI Wales, IOD Wales and FSB Wales, an active Chamber of Commerce network, and a regular diary of University led events, Wales is the place to keep you touch with the wider world.
Coming to Wales has been much better than we ever expected. We didn’t realise just what advantages it would have. We get a lot of support from the Welsh Automotive Forum. It’s fantastic for us, being able to leapfrog and establish cross-sectoral collaborations.River Simple
There’s a strong network of meet-up groups here, which has created a community of developers who know and trust each other.Bipsync
A cluster like CS Connected brings together a world leading academic base, R&D skills and the full end to end supply chain. Organisations coming to Wales to work collaboratively with the cluster would benefit from reduced development cycles, rapid time to production scale and access to the expertise necessary to turn innovative thinking into real products.CS Connected
The success of our company has really come over the past five years, when we’ve got involved with a number of Welsh trade missions. It’s an enriching experience to get involved with different cultures outside Wales, at the same time giving us a platform to a global market with the support and expertise from government experts.Zip-Clip
