LONDON A prize pool of more than £25,000 is up for grabs by inventors and innovators from across the UK in the Innovention 2005 Competition and Exhibition, which takes place at INTEC in Winchester on June 24.
Ken Teal of Wessex Innovation Service, organisers of the event, said “It’s not just about the prize money, it’s a unique opportunity for inventors and innovators to exhibit their ideas to an audience of experts that could help them in their quest to become the next James Dyson. While there are no guarantees of success, past Innovention participants have an excellent record for achieving their ambitions.”
Now in its 14th year, the organisers say this track record of success is such that the event is usually over-subscribed. A vetting process will be used to ensure that only commercially viable ideas get to participate, saving would-be entrepreneurs cost and disappointment while ensuring a high standard for exhibits.
