Hull and East Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (HEY LEP) and Growth Hub are running a series of free promotional events for businesses in Hull and East Yorkshire to discover funding opportunities.
The ‘Grant & Support Package Breakfast Events for Manufacturing Businesses’, held in Hull and the East Riding during June, will provide information and one-to-one sessions to explore the Made Smarter Programme amongst others.
The Made Smarter team is working in partnership with the East Riding Business Support & Hull City Council Business Support teams to offer a range of support and grant funding opportunities to business owners in the manufacturing sector.
The events will bring together a range of support and advisory services in one place, focused solely on the manufacturing sector, where business owners can meet and explore issues with specialists which could have positive impacts on their businesses.
They will also provide business representatives with the opportunities to learn how digital adoption in manufacturing businesses could contribute to cost savings, increased productivity and economic growth, through the implementation of digital technology.
Other schemes companies can discover are HEY LEP Growing Places grants & loans, local business support packages & UK Shared Prosperity Fund schemes as well as the exporting support available via the Department of Business & Trade.
Les Selby, Made Smarter Digital Transformation Specialist at HEY LEP, said: “These sessions are a great opportunity for local manufacturing businesses to find out ways in which they can be supported, both through funding and through tips and advice.
“We look forward to welcoming them and hopefully see them flourish as a result.” The programme of events will begin at The Deep on Thursday 15 June.
There will also be an event at Raise Business Centre in Goole on 20 June and Bridlington Business Centre on Wednesday 5 July.
