Come and meet the experts! Finding and securing funds to take your business forward can feel like a daunting task. Complicated application forms and processes leave many people feeling confused and worried about getting the money they need to achieve their business plans. This event will bring together the various funding opportunities available to Black Country businesses. This is a ticketed drop in breakfast event opening between 7:30am and 10.30am where you can talk to the fund providers and see their stands and displays around the room.  This event is suitable for any type of business, sector or size, who are looking for funding and support to grow and develop.  You will have the opportunity to hear about various business funding streams and projects that can help your company to grow and develop.  You will then have the opportunity to network and talk further to the funders. 

Throughout the Exhibition you can meet funding experts who will tell you about available finance from small grants to significant capital assistance from the European Regional Development Fund. The aim of our event is to help businesses in our region to thrive and grow, creating job security, training opportunities and wealth for our local economy.

Working closely with private-sector organisations to signpost businesses to the most appropriate funding sources our experienced business advisers offer free advice.  They will help you assess your current position to determine what type of finance is appropriate for you.
