External brokerage sessions
We encourage you to take advantage of free online brokerage sessions. These provide an opportunity to pitch your idea and/or identify potential partners usually during one-to-one meetings. Brokerage sessions are generally very useful means of focused networking (a) when you lead an already healthy consortium and are looking for a partner who will give the edge to it; or (b) when looking to be identified as partner.
Below we have indicated two major sessions.
