Commercialising Science and Technology-enabled Innovation

Cartezia and Creative Industries KTN announce the launch of RiffStream#York on July 5th 2012

Concept to Customer: Connecting Partners and Catalysing Investment is the second in a series of experimental events organised by Creative Industries KTN (CIKTN) in conjunction with Cartezia and the University of York.

Details of RiffStream#York are available here.

The workshop will be curated by Dr Uday Phadke (CIKTN’s Investment Theme Champion) and will bring together Creative & Digital Technology SMEs, Large Media and Corporates from Creative Industries with investors and funders. It will use RiffStream#, a methodology developed by Dr Phadke and Cartezia to maximise the value of the networking at this event.

Our overall aim for the event is to explore new ways of facilitating collaboration across Creative Industries sectors, technologies and with investors. Specifically in the context of generating new projects and partnerships as the basis for delivering innovation and securing funding. The day's activities will be focused around 2 themes:

  • Entertainment, Advertising & e-commerce
  • Education, Culture & Heritage

Players in the RiffStream#can benefit by:

  • Better understanding of their role in their business eco-system.
  • Matching their ideas to potential markets with a clear definition of the product or service they can take to market.
  • Clarity on potential business models and their revenue, cost and investment envelopes.
  • Relationships with potential suppliers and partners.
  • Early dialogues with potential funders, investors and customers.
