On the 14th November 2013, Stirling’s R&D Manager, Dr. Simon Hancock, and Business Manager, Peter Stirling, made their way to Venturefest Bristol 2013. The event, which was held at the UWE Conference Centre, was organised by Science City Bristol in partnership with the Technology Strategy Board (TSB). Venturefest Bristol is aimed at “anyone who has an early-stage technology business idea and is looking for support and advice to get that idea off the ground”.

Both Stirling representatives provided presentations at the two Venturefest workshop streams – Collaboration and Funding. In addition to his presentation, Peter also sat on the investor panel for ‘The Pitch’ where new businesses pitched their ideas to investors. Stirling were also able to film on the day, and the resulting video not only higlights Stirling’s activities at Venturefest but also succesfully captures the energy and diversity of the event – click here to watch the video in full.
