  • C4DI is one of the UK’s leading technology incubators. A challenge many of our businesses have is a lack of a focussed approach to business development. To help with that, Bob Spence has delivered a number of business development programmes at C4DI based on the 5next method that helps build a network of connections in a structured fashion.

    The software 5next has developed supports this approach and I believe it is a groundbreaking method of business development. In fast-growing businesses, time is rare and so any connections need to be developed in an effective and efficient way.
