Venturefest, which draws Oxfordshire’s inventors and innovators closer to investors, and which was postponed last year thanks to Covid-19, is to return this November.

Sarah Haywood, Managing Director at Advanced Oxford, the organisation which is working to support the long-term development and success of the Oxford region as a place to live and work, and Board Member at Venturefest Oxford, said: "Venturefest 2021 will be a half day conference on Thursday 25th November but the programme and thought leadership will be as rich as ever.  Coming soon after the COP26 conference, you can expect to see local business leaders reflecting on the low carbon and sustainability agenda. We will also be looking forward to ensure that Oxfordshire continues to be at the forefront of enterprise, innovation, development of cutting edge technology and new industries."

She added: "We are planning for an in-person event, while also recognising that there will likely be demand for on-line access; Venturefest 2021 will therefore be a blend of live audience and live-stream content."
