Register for our breakfast event on
Wednesday 18 July
8.30 am for a 9.00 am start 

We are delighted to host an exclusive breakfast event.  Come along, enjoy a bacon butty and hear all about the funding available within our region and talk in confidence directly with a fund manager about your growth project (or plans).

There are numerous business support and funding schemes out there, all designed to help your business grow, but where do you start?  Which ones would you be eligible for and does your business ‘tick’ all the boxes?  Have you the time to go through the process and write the application?

It can be a challenge keeping up to date with the business support landscape and the eligibility criteria for each scheme … which is why we want to help you.  We have brought together fund managers from across the region, to provide a detailed insight into their respective schemes.  They will share advice on how to apply and what makes a good application.  We also have 1-2-1 slots available directly with the funders, where you can talk in confidence through the detail of your current growth plans, project or opportunities for the future.

Gillian Baker our Growth Consultant and our directors and team will be on hand to discuss how we can help you through the application process.  We have a full grant application writing service available and will provide one to one advice and co-ordination of all activities, releasing you to focus on the management of your business, what you do best, whilst still ensuring you can access everything available to you.

You as the tax payer directly fund many of the business support and funding schemes available, so why not access some of this support for your business, that’s what the schemes are designed for. 

Don’t miss this event.  For an investment of just over an hour (with the added bonus of a breakfast butty!), come along and see how we can help support your growth journey.

To register your interest, complete the form below, or contact or telephone 01429 234414 to secure your place.

For innovative projects, you may also be eligible to claim R&D tax relief 

R&D Research and Development, refers to innovative activities undertaken by companies in developing new services or products or processes, or improving existing services or products or processes. 

We’ll also explain R & D on the day.  We can deal with the claim on your behalf.  You’ve nothing to lose!
