Hays recruitment and global super connectors, Empact Ventures, have expanded their support to tech start-ups and scale-ups to include the Enterprise M3 area. 

The Super Connect Series brings together the best emerging tech start-ups and scale-ups with decision-makers at corporates, brands, SMEs, non-profits, investors, grant bodies and funding providers to explore collaboration and funding support based on mutual need.

The events will be run as part of a regional roadshow from October 2019 to June 2020 following a successful pilot in five areas,

Each local event combines a series of tech talks with a range of innovative pitches from tech start-ups and scale-ups all powered by a unique match-making process to connect people based on mutual need during and after the day through its team of Super Connectors. The event themes include Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), FinTech, Cyber Security, MedTech, RetailTech and Fibre Network / 5G, AR/VR amongst others.

The Super Connect Series exists to address the challenge people face when attending events in identifying the right people to meet and understanding if they are potentially interested in their organisation, project or venture. More so, it is focused on supporting smaller companies to be given the opportunity to work with larger ones and access a wider range of funding sources at a local to national level.

The Super Connect Series includes:

  • 14th November 2019 – Super Connect London (AI & MedTech)
  • 20th November 2019 – Super Connect Bournemouth (MedTech & AI)
  • 27th November 2019 – Super Connect Southampton (AI, IoT & FinTech)
  • 4th June 2020 – Super Connect Basingstoke (AI, AR/VR, 5G)

While tech start-ups and scale-ups have access to an abundance of investment opportunities in the UK, they still face the challenge of securing new business development and a blended range of funding opportunities. For larger organisations and funding providers they often face the challenge of meeting many smaller tech companies before they find the gems that fit their sweet spot for the purposes of their innovation sourcing, business development and/or funding purposes. 

In both cases, our goal is to bring people together to explore collaboration in a mutually beneficial manner that creates aggregate economic and/or social impact. Empact Ventures and Hays UK & I are both super connectors of technology and people respectively who are committed to supporting the growth of small to large organisations, and it is for this reason why we co-designed the Super Connect Series.
