20 October –
This free breakfast meeting on Friday 20 October is aimed at SME leaders who want to find out more about the Aston Programme for Small Business Growth and receive support with their applications.
The Aston Programme for Small Business Growth is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). It is free for SMEs who have an operational address within the Black Country, Coventry and Warwickshire, Greater Birmingham and Solihull or the Marches (transitional area only) LEP regions.
The core of the programme is a series of practical workshops taking place over six months focusing on topics relevant to leaders of growing SMEs. Participants also receive one-to-one support from an experienced business mentor to develop a growth strategy and tackle any barriers to growth.
This information session will give you an opportunity to meet the team who run the programme, network with other local business leaders and ask any questions you might have about the programme or application process. Breakfast is also included.
