Professor Gurpreet Jagpal, pro vice-chancellor for Business and Entrepreneurship at the University of Suffolk, is looking for innovative businesses.
If you’ve been developing a creative way to cope with this year’s tough trading times – or if you’ve been advancing your business in an original way – we have some good news for you. Entries for the Suffolk Business Awards have been extended until June 14, so there’s still time to enter the Innovation in Business category, sponsored by the University of Suffolk.
The Innovation in Business award celebrates the transformational impact of game-changing products, processes and services. Successful firms will be using technology in new ways, adopting innovative business models, or finding new ways to solve problems that can transform lives.
The University of Suffolk’s Business Engagement and Entrepreneurship activities and its Suffolk Business School are focussed on building collaborations with businesses to support our teaching and learning provision, and our research activities, as we support their growth. This outward focus gives a unique insight into what it takes to make an innovative business.
Like all businesses, Covid-19 has affected the university and we are having to look at how we adapt to continue supporting our staff, students and the wider business community. As innovative businesses adapt, they should also be asking what role they can play to help the country fight coronavirus.
