The six events – running from mid-October to the end of November – will be a chance for business people and others in the area to learn more about the D2N2 LEP’s current and future projects.

Guest speaker – Andrew Pickin, Commercial Partner at Shoosmiths LLP legal firm of Nottingham (and new D2N2 LEP Board Member for Business Engagement).

In addition to guest speakers each Business Breakfast event will feature an update from D2N2 Chief Executive David Ralph, or Chairman Peter Richardson. Senior officers will also give information on current and future D2N2 projects and services, including:

Growth Hub – A free advice service for new and recently established businesses, which has dealt with over 500 enquiries since it was established at the beginning of 2015.
Skills – Investment in Skills has seen the launch of special projects including the ‘Provider Charter’; to actively create closer links between employers, and skills and training providers.
European Structural Investment Funds (ESIF) – D2N2 has been allocated £214million to spend in its area over six years; to finance projects addressing business, education, employment, low carbon technology, social exclusion, business entrepreneurship and competitiveness, and many other issues.
Business financing – Grants and loans to help businesses take forward their own expansion plans or to kick-start stalled development projects, to create jobs.
Capital Investment – Building infrastructure and creating jobs. Recent announcements include D2N2’s £6.5million investment in BioCity Nottingham’s £30m extension, currently under construction.
