Finance, Funding & Grants
We would like to invite you to our free Invest in Bradford Enterprise Network event.
The aim of the event is to inform your business about funding,finance and grants that your business may be eligible for. Finding out more about funding options is an excellent way to unlock the growth potential of new and established businesses. Many businesses just don’t know about support that is available.
At the end of the event, you will leave with a better understanding of funding support available, the eligibility criteria and the processes to obtain funding/finance.
The event will also provide an opportunity for businesses to network and meet experts working in finance. Our Business Advisers will also be available to give information and answer any questions about support services available through Invest in Bradford.
The following speakers will be presenting at the event:
Jeremy Meadowcroft – Business Enterprise Fund (providing loans to SME businesses that will help them thrive and grow when other lenders can’t fully assist.)
Ravinder Panesar – Ad:Venture (providing free business development support and guidance for businesses less than 3 years old, with growth potential.)
Melissa Liburd – (providing an overview of programmes of support available in the Leeds City Region.)
There are a number of pay and display car parks close by:
