Event details

Thursday, 24 June | 2:30 – 4:00PM

The implementation of new innovative funding models has enabled charities to be dynamic and entrepreneurial in their approach and also improve outcomes for beneficiaries.

Through successful partnering with commercial enterprises and universities, we have seen an increase in charities supporting innovative medical research, new technologies and fast-moving science in order to deliver their charitable, strategic objectives.

Please join Withers charities and Withers tech partners, Chris Priestley and James Shaw, who will chair discussions with key figures on how successful partnerships and new funding models are shaping the sector.
