Join us as we announce our Pioneer 10 winner

March 25th 2019

Join us as we announce our Pioneer 10 winner. Next month, the latest cohort of Harborough District Council’s Pioneer 10 companies will discover which of them is our overall winner.

At stake is the honour of joining previous winners such as Elite Scooters and HIC residents Oakwood Training.

At the Pioneer 10 Final, on Monday 8 April, each business will give their final pitch to a panel of judges, made up of local business owners and directors.

All Harborough Innovation Centre customers are invited to join us for the announcement of the winner, the presentation of the award and a light lunch. Spaces are limited, so will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. We will email everyone in the centre with the link to book a place very soon.

Harborough Innovation Centre is owned and supported by Harborough District Council (HDC). As the building owner HDC also funds the Centre’s business support provision, providing the basis for expert business advice, mentoring and workshops.
