Are you looking at ways to fund your new product or business process? Is a lack of finance holding you back?

Developing new products or processes often requires substantial investment and this can represent a significant risk for businesses both large and small.  
If a lack of finance is holding you back or you need financial support to develop your next innovative product, why not join us at our one day workshop which will highlight and explain the range of funding options available from grants or Angel investment to crowd funding and tax incentives.

This workshop will provide an overview from experts in their field with the chance to raise questions and discuss how these work, and what the benefits can be. The day will also provide expert opinion and information around registering and protecting intellectual property rights.

Advisors from both the Greater Manchester Business Growth Hub Innovation and Access to Finance teams will be on hand to discuss your specific needs.

Please register your interest to attend and a member of the team will contact you.
