The Accelerator Tent was one of many spaces hosting activities at the festival. The Hethel Innovation team ran games and talks for both children and adults throughout the day. Young attendees were inspired to consider future careers in STEM businesses by learning to build paper catapults and windmills. Drop in advice sessions were held for individuals to hone their business skills.  

‘Sponsoring and attending the Norfolk Enterprise Festival was a great experience. It was interesting to meet and speak to Norfolk businesses and get kids excited about following a career in STEM when they are older. We hope the individuals we spoke to at the event learnt something new about what we offer at Hethel Innovation and the help we provide enterprises around Norfolk’.  

Additionally, the festival featured a range of thought- provoking keynotes, panels, discussions, plus arts and entertainment. Celebrating its second year, the festival focused on ‘Sustainable Growth and The Green Economy’. Speaking on a panel discussion was Scottow Enterprise Park Site Manager, Elliot Dransfield, a commercial business park managed by Hethel Innovation.
