Incubation

Do you have a strong idea for an event?

We can help it get off the ground and accelerate growth.


Funding

Finding investment for a new event or publishing product can be difficult with little or no track record.  Converse Media has an extensive industry network which can be used to find funding at all levels for suitable projects.

In addition, we work with the entrepreneurs to prepare a high quality business plan which will significantly increase the chances of getting the new idea off the ground as quickly as possible.


Resources

Creating an event requires a number of specific skillsets.  It is our experience that bringing in these skillsets at the correct time significantly helps both the time to market of the product and also results in a signficantly better offering.

Converse Media can provide those resources as they are required depending on your requirements including:

  • Direct Marketing
  • Content marketing and social media
  • Sales (Sponsorship, Exhibition, Advertising)
  • Sales (Delegates, Subscriptions)
  • Creative design and technical development
  • Database build
  • Logistics and operations
  • Financial control

Infrastructure

Various tools are required to ensure that the product process runs smoothly and as efficiently as possible.  These tools are typically found on the could, thus significantly reducing the cost and investment required.  That said, benefits of scale certainly do play their part in the pricing of these services.

Additionally, it can be confusing and time consuming selecting the correct solutions.  We can provide a number of the required tools including:

  • CRM Solutions
  • Sales management tools
  • Email engines
  • Registration systems
  • Subscription management
  • Websites

Experience

In our years, we have made many mistakes and it is important to us that the products which launch through our incubation programme are well supported and are given the best chance of success.

Entrepreneurs will be supported throughout the lifetime of the project cycle and will benefit from avoiding the isolation and associated difficulties often experienced in the start-up environment.
