Finance Funding and Grants

Would you like to find out what funding and support is available to help develop and grow your business?

If you would, join us on Thursday, 11 July 2019, at the Herriots Hotel, Broughton Road, Skipton, BD23 1RT, from 08:00am to 10:30am.

This FREE event will inform you about the finance, funding and grants that your business may be eligible for and provide an opportunity for you to network with other like-minded businesses.

There will also be the opportunity of meeting the experts working in finance, as well as Craven District Council’s SME Growth Manager and New Start Business Adviser who will be available to discuss and answer any questions about the business support on offer.

At the end of the event, you will leave with a better understanding of the support and funding available and how we can help you access this.

This event has been arranged by Craven District Council and is free to attend, which includes a light buffet breakfast.
