Cornwall Innovation Club

The Cornwall Innovation Club is our bi-monthly breakfast club for innovators, knowledge-sharers and collaborators. It’s also the only fully subsidised business members club in Cornwall, thanks to ERDF funding. Each event features inspirational guest speakers who are experts in their field or founders of innovative businesses, and quite often are both! Designed to inspire and nurture a culture of innovation throughout Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, the club supports business innovation in its broadest sense.

Our members kick-start their morning with a coffee and networking with the crème de la crème of Cornish businesses, sharing ideas and igniting valuable partnerships across the Duchy. Want to join the club?
