D2N2 Growth Hub: How to identify and win funding for your business

19 September, 2017, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Do you feel that it’s always someone else that secures grant funding? Do you know where to find grants? And are you deterred by the application process?  In short, this event will help you identify the correct funding for your business and submit a competitive proposal.

Key issues

• Who are “the funders” and what are they looking for?
• Capital and revenue funding
• State Aid – what does it mean?
• Application process – top tips (and common mistakes)
• Financial projections – what are the funders looking for?
• Examples of some of the funds available today.

Who should attend?

This workshop is for SMEs, sole traders and business owners in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.  Particularly those interested in learning more about putting together a successful application to grow their business through grant funding.

Further information and registration

Registration is from 9.00am for a prompt start at 9.30am with refreshments provided on arrival.  The venue is Rushcliffe Council Chamber at Rushcliffe Arena.  This workshop is funded by the European Regional Development Fund.  Furthermore, it is hosted by the D2N2 Growth Hub in partnership with  Rushcliffe Business Partnership and EMB Group.  Register now.

The workshop will be delivered by David Smith, Business Growth Director at EMB Group.  EMB Group is a well recognised specialist in securing and managing complex EU funded projects and an acknowledged State Aid expert.  They have worked closely with a number of LEPs in bidding for, and running, RGF funded grant programmes, some of which are matched by ERDF money.

This workshop is funded via the European Regional Development Fund.  Therefore we are required to evidence that you are a small to medium enterprise (SME).  There will be a couple of forms that will need to be completed either prior to the event or on the day and these will be sent to you once you have registered.  One form is to ensure you are a small to medium enterprise.  The second is to capture any business support received over the last 3 years to ensure you haven’t exceeded €200,000.  If you have previously completed these forms at a Growth Hub event you will not have to complete another set.
