Innovative 'Dragons Den' at the RICOH
Today was very exciting - we kicked off the the first of two jam-packed days of innovative supplier pitches to one of CONNECT's founder partners, A-Plant at the RICOH arena.
SMEs and global giants alike presented their innovative ideas to our 'Dragons' - a panel made up of operations, commercial, procurement, SHEQ representatives and even Sat Dhaiwal, A-Plant's CEO. A-Plant is committed to working in collaboration with our supply chain, and in co-developing and investing in innovative products and services to help our HS2 contractor customers to deliver a better service to HS2 Ltd. We have so many ideas that were presented to us and will be #investinginthebest and bringing them to market very soon!
The next generation of innovative SMEs from the CONNECT community will be invited back to a further session on 6 December 2017...more information to follow soon on our Events page! A massive thanks and well done to everyone who joined us...the future is certainly bright!
