Global brands, with an inspirational story to tell, came together with local businesses on Teesside on May 22 to share expertise and learning at VentureFest Tees Valley, which took place at Wynyard Hall.

Simon Green, Director of VentureFest Tees Valley, said: “VentureFest centres on bringing together innovators, experts and businesses who wouldn’t normally have the chance to meet. Our speakers have provided an inspirational backdrop against which we hope many new connections and conversations were started. We’re very much looking forward to hearing about some of the success to come from VentureFest Tees Valley in the coming weeks and months.”
