British Business Bank and the HEY Growth Hub.
The Hull and East Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership’s (HEY LEP) Business Growth Hub and the British Business Bank (BBB) are jointly hosting a free event to offer advice and support to businesses.
The breakfast briefing takes place from 8.00am – 10.00am on Thursday 10 November at C4di in Hull.
This first ever joint event between HEY LEP and the BBB will demonstrate how the BBB’s range of funding products could help businesses unlock investment or become more resilient. Attendees will hear from the HEY Growth Hub, who provide a range of support services to local businesses including 1-2-1 advice, interactive workshops and webinars, grant funding, and more. They will also hear how other local businesses have benefitted from investment from the Bank and how this has transformed their business prospects.
Breakfast refreshment will be available from 8.00am. Attendees will also have the opportunity to network with representatives of the BBB, HEY LEP and other delegates.
There will opportunities to ask questions, and “drop-in” clinics will be available with BBB Fund Managers and Growth Hub Investment Readiness Business Advisors during the event.
The event is being hosted as part of Business Finance Week 2022, which invites smaller businesses to learn all about the opportunities and finance options available to them to support their individual needs.
James Newman OBE, Chair of HEY LEP said “Finance is the lifeblood of any business, and access to appropriate forms of finance is needed whether a business is looking to grow or indeed navigate through challenging economic times.
“Accessing finance and funding is often seen as one of the most challenging tasks of any business owner, however our Business Growth Hub has a specialist team of Investment Readiness Business Advisors who are able to provide impartial advice and guidance to SME businesses who are seeking external investment. We are therefore delighted to be hosting this event with the British Business Bank where we can showcase both the investment products of the bank as well as the support available from the HEY Growth Hub.”
Dr Sophie Dale-Black, Director UK Network – Midlands and North of England at the British Business Bank said: “Small businesses are under immense pressure – the effects of COVID-19 and rising energy prices means business owners are having to navigate an incredibly complex and unpredictable economic climate.
“Business Finance Week, through a range of activities, is intended to help inform smaller businesses on the different finance options available to them, to support their individual needs. We are pleased to partner with Hull and East Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership to deliver this timely event on 10 November and would encourage smaller businesses to attend.”
