Spotting the signs that your business could benefit from external funding is a great first step, running your own business isn’t easy. 

Event details

Do you know when you need to start making investment for growth and how can you be prepared for your funding journey?  Recognising the need for investment will help alleviate short-term pressures and can be the catalyst for driving your business on to better things. 

Preparation is key when it comes to funding applications. It will make the application process easier and will help you to negotiate the best deal. But perhaps most importantly, being clear about how and when you will invest the funds will mean you can make the most of new funding. 

Delegates will be provided with a broad overview of the types of different funding platforms available from our FSB Funding Platform experts, along with advice on preparing your business for funding/inward investment and what a good funding application should look.

The Growth Hub will also be on hand to outline other aspects of business support they are able to offer small businesses, which is why this event is limited to businesses which operate across the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire area.
