SOLIHULL firm Aceon Battery Solar Technology has been selected to showcase their innovative technology at this year’s Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham, from October 7-10.
Now in its second year, the Start-Up Competition attracted entrants from across the country and is being supported by Fujitsu, Inmarsat and the British Venture Capital Association.
The final 12 budding entrepreneurs will showcase their business in front of delegates, national press, company representatives and senior Conservative politicians.
Prime Minister David Cameron, who launched the competition, said: “I want to encourage businesses to create and innovate, to invest and grow, to develop and break boundaries.
“That is why I’m proud that the Conservative Party is once again showcasing the best of British innovation and entrepreneurship at our Conference through the Start-up Hub.”
Mark Thompson, CEO of Aceon, added: “ACEON Solar are absolutely delighted to be awarded the opportunity to showcase our innovation especially after being a UKTI regional winner for the recent Growth for Export Awards.”
