We will now be accepting applications until 12 noon on Monday 12 November for the IC tomorrow ‘Meet the Innovators 3’ opportunity in association with Hello Culture 2012. There have been some technical issues with the Hello Culture 2012 website, however, it is now live and updated with information about the two day event on a daily basis. Building on the success of previous IC tomorrow ‘Meet the Innovators’ and Hello events, we have teamed up to create the much needed space for digital companies to connect with the Cultural sector and create new business opportunities. This event focuses on the theme of ‘ Transforming Culture though Digital’. The event also includes a showcase of two of our recently funded projects within the cultural sector, in collaboration with the Wallace Collection and Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery.
For this opportunity, we are looking for ten digital companies to pitch their ideas, applications and/or services to a wide range of national cultural organisations, venues, artists and producers. Successful candidates will have five minutes to pitch. There will be a £5,000 IC tomorrow award for the application offering the best prospect for a trial with one or more of the participating cultural organisations.
To round off the day, a further ten companies will also be selected to join in our exclusive speed networking session. All those taking part will be promoted through the programme, and IC tomorrow’s ongoing support and opportunities.
Meet The Innovators 3 takes place on Thursday 22 November, at The Custard Factory in Birmingham as part of the Hello Culture 2012 conference which takes place over the 22 and 23 November.
Applicants who have already entered for this opportunity can use the extended deadline to continue working on their application if they choose to do so. They can simply resubmit their application with the same application name, and the last submission received will be considered for the opportunity.
In order to apply for both the pitching and the speed networking opportunity, please fill out our simple application form outlining why you think your company or product is relevant to this opportunity, by 12 noon Monday 12 November.
