NCC: Manufacturing Sector Breakfast Seminar Series – Seminar 2 – Funding for Growth

30 November, 2018, 7:30 am - 11:00 am


Nottinghamshire County Council, together with the D2N2 Growth Hub, is hosting a series of seminar events focused around Nottinghamshire’s Manufacturing and Engineering sector. The aims of this seminar series are twofold. Firstly to inform businesses of some of the specialist support available for the manufacturing and engineering sector, with a view to helping SMEs to grow and succeed. Secondly, to encourage collaboration and discussion between businesses in the sector.

What’s on offer?

In this, the second of three events, businesses will have the opportunity to hear from organisations offering a range of funding and finance solutions to the sector. The list of speakers and topics for this session is detailed in the agenda section.

The third event, in February 2019, will look forward to the challenges and opportunities for the sector after the United Kingdom leaves the EU. The speakers from each event will be exhibiting at all three seminars, giving businesses the opportunity to engage directly with the presenting organisations. There will also be opportunities to network and exchange ideas with other businesses in the sector.

Who is it for?

This event is suitable for ambitious SMEs in Nottinghamshire’s Manufacturing and Engineering sector looking to grow.

There will be a couple of forms that will need to be completed either before the event or on the day. We will send these to you once you have registered.  One form is to ensure you are a small to medium enterprise.  The second is to capture any support you have received over the last 3 years to ensure you haven’t exceeded €200,000.  If you have previously completed these forms at a D2N2 Growth Hub event, you will not have to complete another set.
