Posted on: 05/03/2018

Innovating or looking to scale-up your business? Let us help you!

NOTE: This event has been rescheduled to 24th April due to postponement during recent heavy snowfall.

The New Anglia Growth Hub, together with Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) and Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) are hosting a free masterclass aimed at companies that are growing or have potential to scale, using or developing new technology or investing in research and innovation.

‘Turbocharge Your Innovation and Scale-up Your Business’ is a half day event being held at Hethel Engineering Centre in Norfolk on 24th April 2018 from 9am to 1pm. This will help businesses from Norfolk and Suffolk understand funding and grants available, get tips for writing an application with a high chance of success, and discover the one to one application support that is available. There will be the opportunity to hear first-hand the benefits and experiences of local businesses, understand your firm’s capacity to commercialise and scale-up, or progress to the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Programme.

Funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), this rare opportunity is free to attend, but spaces are limited! One representative per company please. Tea, coffee and breakfast will be provided.
