Earlier this year Invest Ashfield & Mansfield launched a monthly feature in the CHAD to let businesses across Ashfield & Mansfield know all about the useful and important work being delivered through this project.  Here’s the latest update for June:

Invest Ashfield & Mansfield is proud to announce our attendance at the first-ever MIPIM UK in October which will promote our area as a successful business location to a national audience of property professionals.  We are working with our AMbassadors to engage local business expertise to support this promotion.

Elsewhere on the promotional front, we are developing a brochure to help highlight the area’s business benefits, complemented by a suite of promotional videos.  A PR company will also help us gain maximum positive publicity for Ashfield & Mansfield.  We’ll provide a fuller update next month.

Graduates into Enterprise is still open to local businesses and graduates, who have graduated in the last two years, until September.  This gives local companies a recently qualified graduate’s skills for six months – at a greatly subsidised cost. Current graduate opportunities are listed on Mansfield District Council’s website.  To find out more, or register your own project, contact us.

Grants to Support Innovation of up to £5,000 are available to local companies to help fund business growth or improvement.  A wide range of projects can be supported, including improvements to products, services, technology or business practices.

On 11 June we will be attending Stopford’s Step Up to Business event (link now cl0sed), providing free advice to anyone thinking about starting a business and masterclasses.   This drop-in event will run 10am–4pm at the Mansfield i-Centre.  For more information contact:

Invest Ashfield & Mansfield (funded by Ashfield and Mansfield District Councils and the European Regional Development Fund) provides several free and confidential services including business events, property searches, business surveys, relocation advice and information.
