Turbocharge Your Innovation & Scale-up Your Business – NORWICH

 

ARE YOU GROWING, INNOVATIVE, DEVELOPING NEW TECHNOLOGIES OR INVESTING IN R&D?
If so, then this may be for you. 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 fast growing or have potential to scale, using or developing new technology or investing in research and innovation.

This half day event being held at Hethel Engineering Centre will help businesses from Norfolk and Suffolk understand funding and grants available, 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 (ERDF) Fund, this rare opportunity is free to attend, but spaces are limited! One representative per company please.
