If you are an Oldham-based business, join us at the Oldham Enterprise Fund launch event to find out how you can secure finance to help you grow your business.
The event will feature a number of presentations from Oldham Council, the Stoller Charitable Trust, Oldham Enterprise Trust and Business Finance Solutions.
The partners will explain what the Oldham Enterprise Fund is - the way it is funded and how it is delivered, as well as outlining the business support available to businesses and entrepreneurs in Oldham and most importantly how to access it. You will also hear from a business that has already benefited from the Fund.
There will also be an opportunity to engage with guest speakers in a Q&A session and enjoy an informal networking with other local attendees.
