25 June 2012
LJMU's Commercial and International Directorate (CID) is running an event on 11 July to outline the benefits of commercialising your research and to explore the best approaches and practical steps necessary to take technologies, products or ideas to market.Open to all LJMU staff and students, the half day (morning) event will include presentations from CID Commercialisation and Student Enterprise teams. Information will be provided about protecting software, the LJMU commercialisation process (and what’s in it for you) and how to identify a commercial opportunity.
There will be guest speakers from Valueworks. Valueworks is a highly successful company which provides e-commerce services, with specialist knowledge of providing procurement software as a service. They will outline their experience of bootstrapping their business, which now employs over 100 people and has been identified by Deloitte as one of the UK’s top 50 fastest growing technology companies. Valueworks has recently set up Cloud9 Ventures which helps inventors with technology/business ideas in e-commerce or digital space to get their ideas to market.
The event will also provide an opportunity to have a one-to-one advice session around your technology or business idea.
