Further information and registration

While this is a FREE event, we only have a limited number of spaces available.  So don’t delay, book your place today.  This workshop is hosted in partnership between D2N2 Growth Hub and Oxford Innovation.  Because the European Regional Development Fund is part-funding this event, we need to evidence that you are a small to medium enterprise.

Therefore there are a couple of forms that you need to complete either before the event or on the day itself.  And you will receive these once you have registered. The first is to ensure you are a small to medium enterprise.  The second is to capture any business support you have received over the last 3 years.  This will help to ensure you haven’t exceeded €200,000.  If you have previously completed these forms at a Growth Hub event, you will not need to complete another set.
