What is ELEVATE?
Kirklees Council is passionate about supporting new and early stage businesses in their growth journey, as they play a critical role within the local economy.
This is even more important now in light of the pandemic.
Delivered by the University of Huddersfield, Elevate will provide mentoring and access to specialist advice and support to supercharge the growth of start-ups.
The project will form an important part of the local ecosystem of business advice and the Council is delighted to be providing support for the project.
Facilitated by leading academics, and supported by business mentors, Elevate will bring together individuals from ambitious, young businesses to develop the leadership capabilities in your organization.
Elevate has been designed to introduce a series of crucial questions that you should be asking of yourself and your business in these turbulent times – the answers to which could help identify new opportunities for growth within your businesses.
We are currently taking expressions of interest, with programme start expected late November 2020.
ELEVATE – Lifting Kirklees Start-Ups to the next level!
- Expertly delivered masterclasses
- Intensive one to one support delivered by academics at Huddersfield University
Funded by the European Regional Development Fund, ELEVATE at The University of Huddersfield is part of the AD:VENTURE programme and delivered in partnership with Kirklees Council.
It is aimed at businesses who are:
- Looking to grow and create jobs in the Leeds City Region
- Delivering their product or services to other businesses rather than direct to the consumer.
- Looking for a structured programme, with flexible one to one support, which will keep you on track to help achieve your goals.
Please Note: ERDF Eligibility criteria do apply, and businesses in consumer retail (Only selling to the public), primary agriculture, and nuclear decommissioning and education provision will not be eligible. If you aren’t sure, give us a call or email and we can clarify before you register.
