Welsh ICE is teaming up with the Wales Festival of Innovation to deliver our next Open Day on the 26th of June!

The Wales Festival of Innovation aims to showcase innovation here in Wales through a number of events, run by companies and academia. It will provide innovators with the opportunity to network with industry experts, showcase their products and services to potential customers and members of the public from across Wales and beyond.

Focusing on business support and training we’re breaking our Open Day into two segments; a free drop-in business advice surgery and an expert workshop on Funding from Gareth Jones.

PLUS- once more, we’re offering free coworking all day (usually £15 per day)! So if you’re looking for a new, creative space to work on your project, freelance work or business then this is a great opportunity to check out if Welsh ICE is a good fit for you.  Email rachel@welshice.org to secure your desk.

If you need advice on how to start, grow or improve your business, our advice clinic is the place for you! From 10-12pm we’ll bring together all the people you need to see in one room. Our exhibitors can help you wherever you are on your business journey.
