Funding news at free local business show

Tue 12th May, 2015 by Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership

Businesses and individuals from across Leicester and Leicestershire are invited to a free Business Showcase on Wednesday 20th May at Leicester Racecourse.

So far, over 50 businesses will be at the Racecourse from 12 noon to 5pm offering information on a range of business-related needs such as help with exporting, getting information on the local property market, accessing finance to IT, marketing and recruitment.

Representatives from the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership and Leicester City Council will also be giving live presentations on Access to Funding and the current Broadband Voucher scheme.

Kevin Harris, Vice Chair of the LLEP said “It is a very exciting time for businesses in Leicester and Leicestershire. We are seeing significant growth and job creation and this has been evidenced over the last two years through our Regional Growth Fund grant schemes.

“We are proudly pioneering a local celebration event which will not only demonstrate the diverse range and breadth of businesses in Leicester and Leicestershire but importantly, celebrate the business’ achievements.”

Also taking place during the afternoon are free specific, textile-themed activities including a Retailer Engagement Masterclass delivered by The Leicestershire Textiles Hub at PERA1 and a ‘Preparing to Export' workshop by UKTI2.

The Business Celebration Showcase event is completely FREE to attend, but registration via Eventbrite is essential:
