New Dock centre hosts inaugural innovation seminar with Torr Waterfield to inspire Leicester businesses

Join us at Dock on Tuesday 15th October for a free seminar to encourage Leicester businesses to explore innovation as a potential route to future expansion and export.  ‘Supporting Leicester Innovation’ is the first major event to be hosted at Leicester new Dock with presentations by ourselves and colleagues from Pera Technology and Serjeants.

Darran Thacker, from UK and European patent attorneys Serjeants LLP, will give an introduction to intellectual property and how it can be used to support business development and growth, while Dr Mark Wareing of Pera Technology, will talk about how companies can access public and private finance to fund New Product Development. 

In addition, our own Tom Simpson will speak about practical solutions relating to taxation and accountancy including the lucrative tax reliefs available for Research and Development and the Government’s recently launched Patent Box initiative.

Dock, Leicester’s new hub for high-tech and innovation businesses, part of Pioneer Park on Exploration Drive, offers a range of workspaces including laboratory and workshops for up to 55 businesses, as well as conference and exhibition facilities.
