Funding for innovation and growth

9 May, 2017, 7:30 am - 11:00 am

D2N2 Growth Hub is hosting an innovation and growth workshop in partnership with The University of Nottingham.  Because this event is funded by the European Regional Development Fund, attendance is absolutely FREE.  Basically, this event is aimed at high growth SMEs wishing to grow their business through innovation.

Moreover, this FREE event is open to businesses across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.  Indeed, delegates will learn how to access £2.5 billion annual funding and support programmes for developing innovative products and services.  In addition, there will be experts on hand to give advice.  Not only that, but there will also be the opportunity to arrange follow-up one-to-one business support sessions.

In summary, this event is funded by the European Regional Development Fund.   And it is hosted by the D2N2 Growth Hub in partnership with The University of Nottingham.  Basically, this means that attendance is free.  But since it’s likely to be a very popular session, spaces will probably disappear quickly.
