KTN's online platform helps you to make the connections you need

 

The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) has refreshed its online platform to intelligently connect you to relevant events, funding, thought pieces and specialist staff to help your business innovate and grow.

You can discover content using your area of interest, from ICT to transport; from space to health – all major UK economic sectors are covered. Once you have selected your interests, using our intelligent tagging system, we will then display rich and relevant content related to your area, often from surprising sources.

An example might be new satellite technology from the space sector that is applicable in the agri-food sector. KTN-UK.co.uk will help you form these unusual and valuable connections.

All content on the platform has been carefully curated by our team of innovation specialists – not by an automated algorithm – so you can be confident that KTN is connecting you to the most relevant cutting-edge information.

 

The move also marks a closer alignment with our main funder, Innovate UK , with the website branding making a clear visual link. Knowledge Transfer Network is Innovate UK's innovation network partner, and also works with other funders to provide innovation networking services and fulfil our mission to drive UK growth.

We link new ideas and opportunities with expertise, markets and finance through our network of businesses, universities, funders and investors. From agri-food to autonomous systems and from energy to design, KTN combines expertise in all sectors with the ability to cross boundaries. Connecting with KTN can lead to potential partners, horizon-expanding events and innovation insights relevant to your needs.

FinanceCamp North East - Helping regional businesses to secure investment

Businesses need investment. Investors need businesses. FinanceCamp brings everyone together to make exciting things happen.   

The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) is proud to be a partner of  FinanceCamp North East - the smart new way for regional businesses to secure the right kind of investment to fit their plans for growth. This new programme of support will culminate in a major event on 21st June 2016 at Ramside Hall, Durham, where businesses with bright ideas will meet lenders who want to lend and investors who want to invest.

 

Take part in the programme

Enterprises of all sizes, structures and sectors are now being urged to apply for the programme to explore different ways to finance their ambitions – whether that's through a start-up loan, a multi-million pound equity deal or anything in between. 

FinanceCamp has been shaped by input and ideas from a wide cross section of businesses, government bodies, research and educational institutions, business representation groups and support organisations who have an interest in accelerating innovation in the region.

It's being delivered by the team behind the region's annual innovation conference Venturefest North East, to build on the popularity of its investor introduction sessions and provide more opportunities throughout the year to simplify the investment process.  

 

Tailored support

Support provided to businesses taking part in FinanceCamp will be tailored to their needs, stage of growth and structure. 

Expert advisers will work with each participant to explain all of the finance routes open to them, weigh up what fits their plans best and prepare their proposition to make it as attractive as possible to investors. Once they are fully prepared, businesses will then be introduced to a range of potential funders.

FinanceCamp has backing from the North East LEP, North East Finance, the North East BIC and Innovate UK, and with part-funding from the European Regional Development Fund.
