Held as part of Massachusetts Institute of Technology - Industrial Liaison Program (MIT - ILP), as well as benefitting from world-class speakers and workshops, the companies will access a range of experts on a one-to-one basis, tailored to their company’s needs.

Cabinet Secretary for Economy & Infrastructure, Ken Skates said:

“We consider a strong and resilient economy fundamental to a successful Wales. Developing a pro business environment in which businesses can start, grow and flourish is a key priority. The success of Wales in a global market place is demonstrated by the number and profile of companies already operating in Wales.

“But Wales is not complacent and recognises the vital importance of promoting world-class skills, expertise, innovation and forward thinking to ensure continued economic success.

“Enabling companies to learn from the best is one strand of the varied business support offered by Welsh Government through their links with MIT-ILP. This programme puts business leaders in direct contact with the finest minds and practitioners from MIT and provides unique networking and knowledge-sharing opportunities.

“I hope the unique input from the experts presenting in the MIT-ILP into the companies will underpin and fast track business growth, innovation and collaboration and help to strengthen and future proof the Welsh economic landscape.”
