How It Works

The Oxfordshire Business Innovation and Growth Network. The network is an initiative of Oxfordshire Business First and facilitated by Improbable Projects Ltd.

BIG gigs run on a regular basis. A host company is invited to present an innovation challenge to a group of business people. After a few hours, teams report back on their proposed solutions.

Who attends

Business people from across Oxfordshire and beyond attend BIG Gigs. Our attendees form small teams of around 4-5 people each with an experienced facilitator. Maximum attendance at each event is around 30 people, so registration is important.


The next event is being planned. To register for a BIG Gig, please email Paul Essery at
