Oxfordshire Innovation and Growth Team “Collaborative Innovation”
The IGT Board have worked together to develop a strategy and plan to achieve our vision of creating a vibrant community of our most ambitious and innovative businesses (the “ Community of Innovation ”) which will truly establish Oxfordshire as a world class Innovation hotspot.
Oxfordshire already has significant strengths in innovation - there are few places in the world with better support for and a track record with start-ups. However there is a lot more that could be done and by working together we aim to inspire and mobilise everyone in Oxfordshire’s innovation ecosystem to put their energy and resources behind realising our ambitious vision.
Why the formation of South East Business Innovation & Growth Teams?
A new approach to Business Support
Supporting innovative and high growth companies
Reduce multiple programme confusion
Create a “ Community of Innovation ” in Oxfordshire
Companies with demonstrable growth or high growth potential
