Thursday morning at Bath Digital Festival

Hypercharge your Growth with Business Innovation and Digital Strategy

9:30am – 11am, Thursday 24th October 2019 @ BDF2019 Festival Hub

The current pace of disruptive change in a globalised digital economy led by rapid technology innovations has left classic businesses struggling to keep up. But, that is also an opportunity for disruptive/innovative companies, both Digital Natives and Click-and-mortar, to create new markets and get customers.

But even the most cutting edge technical innovations need business innovations to succeed commercially.

This seminar on business model innovation and use of digital strategy to grow and scale your business, joins these two aspects through examples of leading companies.

This year we are kickstarting a monthly BDF Third Thursday networking and collaboration event.  A gathering of people from all walks of the creative and tech industries to learn, discover, collaborate and seed ideas that will propel our incredible region forward.

Each month we will gather together to discuss real challenges in the region – challenges where a creative mindset and an appetite for collaboration can make a real difference.  Join us on Thursday 24th at the BDF hub to light a true crucible of digital creativity, discussion, ideas and an opportunity to make new, enduring friendships with likeminded – and surprising people.
