UPDATED: Free Innovation Masterclass for Cornish Marine Businesses


Marine-i are excited to be hosting a 3 part Innovation Accelerator Masterclass, as part of our business assistance programme aimed at developing Innovative solutions and processes for businesses.

We are running this course in groups of approx. 10-15 and would like to invite your business to attend this course which will be held at The Bedruthan Hotel, Mawgan Porth on the following dates: Thurs 10th March, Wed 23rd March and Wed 6th April, running from 9.30am-3.30pm each day.  (This is a 3 part course however if you are unable to make a certain date please let us know and we will aim to accommodate any issues).

The course is designed to help you accelerate your innovation journey, whether this be something already in the pipeline or in full development, we can assist you in mapping out this journey and overcoming existing obstacles. The course numbers are limited so we can offer practical, individual support to businesses and develop individual action plans to further accelerate your idea or product.

The 3 day course will be delivered by renowned business coach Ben Rotheray of The Value Engine consultancy ( ), who has both an impressive track record and client list. Ben, along with guest experts will guide you through the innovation process, highlighting the pitfalls to avoid and the strategies to implement to increase your innovation success. There will also be the opportunity for some further 1-1 business coaching with Ben and your business following the course completion.

A brief outline of the 3 days is given below, however a full agenda and pre-read materials will be sent out prior to Day 1.

Day 1: Thurs 10th March

  • Target customers: Who are they and what matters to them?
  • 360 thinking around your Innovation
  • Building a pin-sharp value proposition for your new product or service.

Day 2 : Wed 23rd March

  • Mapping your business – The who, what and hows?
  • Identifying critical success drivers to your business and how we test these

Day 3:  Wed 6th April

  • Moving your idea to the next stage and developing action plans
  • Financial Investment assistance – A business finance expert will join us to understand what you need to do to get the investment you need and what’s on offer currently

On each day, you will be fully looked after with refreshments throughout the day and a buffet lunch served at The Bedruthan hotel restaurant. The course is fully funded by the Marine-i programme and is therefore completely free to eligible Cornish based businesses.

The course also provides a great opportunity for some face to face networking with a group of similar innovative minded, Marine themed businesses. This course is suitable for Director level attendees, or those in your senior team involved in the developing the Innovation process.

We are running a short informal Preview/Q&A zoom session on Tuesday 1st March, 2pm with Ben to answer any questions on course content and for those who want to find out a bit more information. This session is expected to last 30-60 mins and is open to all. Please register here for this Preview online session
