Please note, due to demand, registration for this event has now closed. Our next networking event, Recharge: Manchester, will be taking place on Friday 26 January. Further details can be found here.

Get a head start on your business growth this year. Join us in Stockport and come away with a better understanding of how to access the best finance options to grow your business.

We’re delighted to announce that our first guest speaker of the year is Joe Taylor, co-founder of the award-winning, Stockport-based snack company Real Handful Ltd.

Real Handful was launched in 2016 by Joe and wife Carly. Already their range of natural and nutritious snacks are on the shelves of national retail giants including Sainsbury’s, Boots and Holland & Barrett.

Capping off an incredible first year, they were crowned Young Business of the Year at the MEN Business Awards in November. Real Handful is already starting off their year with a bang, being featured in this month's edition of North West Business Insider.

Key to turning their ideas into reality was securing sources of investment along the way. This included £80,000 from our Northwest Business Angels network.

Join us at Stockport Business & Innovation Centre on Friday 19 January to hear Joe’s amazing journey. He'll be highlighting the importance of securing finance for both starting up and accelerating the growth of your business.

There will also be the opportunity for you to network with the region’s ever-growing community of SMEs.

We expect this to be a very popular event, so book early to avoid disappointment and join the conversation.
