Business opportunity database to bring companies together

We’re always meeting new and dynamic companies within the interiors and lifestyle industries and many have synergies that could lead to collaborative opportunities. The trouble is that all this synergy data does not exist in a usable format that can help broker company relationships.

To this end, we’re working with collaboration expert Ken Thompson who has a track record of bringing together diverse communities of businesses to grow sales and enter new markets. He is helping us to develop an opportunity and business networking database to intelligently connect and match West Midlands’ interiors and lifestyle companies.

We recently ran a workshop with several Interiors & Lifestyle Futures companies as part of the development process. Given their very positive feedback we intend to drive this database forward.
