Calling all Midlands Based companies who are aspiring to be Top Performing Businesses
NOA are passionate about helping our customers to Develop their Businesses and this brand new Innovation for companies based in The Midlands looks like a great scheme to participate in. The Midlands Innovation 50 campaign is a collaboration between Mills & Reeve and TheBusinessDesk.com.
This campaign is in response to Birmingham’s escalating position in the global city rankings. Birmingham has been named as being an “International Middleweight” and is just two places away from receiving the status of “knowledge capital”.
The purpose of the campaign is to recognise top performing businesses in the Midlands through a ranked Innovation Index. According to Head of the Birmingham Office at Mills & Reeve: “The Innovation Index is an excellent opportunity to assemble the most enterprising firms, bring together some of the region’s biggest influencers and celebrate the talent the Midlands has to offer”.
Applications are welcome from innovative Midlands-based businesses from the following sectors: manufacturing, creative and digital, science, technology and healthcare, retail, consumer and leisure and financial services.
The top 50 applicants will be showcased within a ranked index in a printed copy of the Innovation 50. This will be distributed throughout the region and will be downloadable online from 4 September 2017 onwards.
The deadline for applications is 16 June 2017.
